“I want to get out of here,” he said. “I’ve had enough of it. I’m weary, I’m tired of it. This tribunal has taken over my life,” he said. “This tribunal has been a cancer to me.” The tribunal has had “a massive impact” on him emotionally and intellectually.
Michael Lowry’s plea to be rid of the Moriarty Tribunal is, I think, genuine. His claim that the tribunal is like a cancer is evident when he appears on television. His face is drawn and anxious and he is, at times, on the verge of tears as desperately tries to escape from his self inflicted ordeal.
We can only hope that Michael and his political colleagues will eventually get rid of this grossly inefficient, expensive and sometimes cruel method of (non) accountability and submit themselves for judgement through the courts, just like ordinary citizens.
When are we going to see a leaflet listing the financial institutions who have robbed their customers so that consumers can do their business in a safe financial environment?
