The nomination of Senator Marc MacSharry of Fianna Fail to the banking inquiry committee set in train a chain of events which has provoked furious accusations of bad faith, conflicts or interest, and Government skulduggery. The Senator gives his party’s side of the story and argues that the scope of any inquiry should include everything from political responsibility to regulatory failure and the role of EU institutions in the Irish banking collapse.
Also, Harry McGee and Arthur Beesley on what’s gone wrong with this Government and what attempts are likely to be made by Fine Gael and Labour to fix matters. How wide-ranging will the reshuffle be and will there be a new Programme for Government?
