Mr Lenihan said the Opposition was to blame for many of the problems facing the State because it failed to prevent the Government’s mistakes.

“We put our hands in the air and say we were responsible – but in fact one of the main reasons that . . . we were able to make those mistakes is we were not checked by a strong Opposition.”

Conor Lenihan in The Irish Times. Just remember that one folks. It’s up there with evolution and kebabs and the like – in fact it surpasses them. By the way Mary Minihan’s interviews and political coverage is becoming a must read these days in the Irish Times – looking forward to a lot more!
