Anne Kelly was watching Alan Shatter in the Dail today giving a speech in response to the latest controversy involivng his office and the Garda Siochana. She says the speech was very technical and you really had to analyse what he was saying to get to the truth behind it. She thinks he should resign.
James used to work in a large organisation of over 1,000 employees. He feels that every large organisation should have a whistleblowers charter. He also feels that Alan Shatters position has been compromised by a series of controversies.
Ray attended the District Court yesterday with his 18 year old daughter. She had received a summons for non payment of a fine. The court was full of such cases. Most people said, like his daughter, that they had never received the fixed penalty notice. The Gardai could not prove they had sent the notice and people could not prove they never received it. Ray feels it was a ludicrous situation.
