Chain Reactions - Political corruption

RTE showed the latest in their Chain Reactions series last night. This episode showed the chain of events leading from Ben Dunnes night in a hotel room in Florida, to his subsequent off the cuff comments about who he had given political donations to, the building of Michael Lowrys house, Ray Burkes trip to jail and then the accusations around Charlie Haughey. Fascinating stuff, a real 30 minute refresher course in that period in Irish politics. Though the last 5 minutes where they What If'd both Michael Lowry and Ray Burke into the Taoiseachs office and Charlie into the Presidency did stretch reality a little.
