The wonders of the blame game

IN the absence of a row about Policing and Justice there was the weekly bust-up about the Presbyterian Mutual Society.

A Westminster parliamentary committee said blame rested partly with the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment. The Minister for that Department, Arlene Foster said HM Treasury should sort things out, and they were partly to blame.

It’s amazing how quickly a side deal (over the Hillsborough Agreement) – albeit one that everyone denies took place – unravels.

Meanwhile those who have seen their savings disappear into an ether of regulations, court cases and political rows can only but despair and wonder how on earth these things have come to pass.
