A week may be a long time in politics but 25 years is even longer

I caught a snippet of Eamon Gilmore being interviewed on RTE radio on Sunday.  At one point he was questioned about the possibly illegal activities of the Workers Party, of which he was a member at one time.

His answer.  "That was a long time ago, twenty five years, a quarter of a century".

Funny, I don't remember that being accepted as an excuse when he was attacking the Catholic Church over child abuse, and in particular Cardinal Brady for his actions back in 1975 - some thirty-eight years ago.

Think that's called hypocrisy.
