A country with consequences and a country of no consequence

A Commons committee, after investigating for less than a year, have found that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit person to run a major international business.

Meanwhile, back in the banana republic of Ireland a tribunal, after 14 years and costing countless millions, found that businessman Denis O’Brien had been involved in some very dodgy dealings with Michael Lowry.

No action has ever been taken (or will be) against Mr. O’Brien.

He remains a man of high standing (although that’s not difficult in a country of such low standards) and a great buddy of the present government.
