Another question of competence
Minister for Children Barry Andrews went on RT yesterday to discuss the controversy over the report into the mishandling of allegations of child abuse in the Cloyne diocese made to the Catholic Church between 15 and 20 years ago. It is understood that the report was commissioned after a number of abuse victims met with the current Finance Minister, Brian Lenihan, while he was minister in charge of children's affairs.

Two years ago the then taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, stressed the need to bolster children's rights with a constitutional referendum that still has not happened. If members of the Government do not care about the most vulnerable in society children who can believe they care about anybody else?
