Recently, during a discussion on the imposition of the levy on civil servants, Ivan Yates made a curious comment.
“I sent a text to Brian Lenihan saying – good days work, keep it up.”
Yates is a former Fine Gael politician; he left politics nine years ago. What’s he doing with the Minister for Finance’s mobile phone number?
I know Irish politicians are great buddies behind the charade of opposition but are they ‘that’ close?
