ABSTRACT
WHY has the Fianna Fáil chairman of the public accounts committee, John McGuinness, come in for such a blitzkrieg from the Government, particularly members of Fine Gaeler? Is someone out there determined that he will not mount a banking inquiry that could embarrass the friends of senior people, or perhaps friends of friends of party bosses? In such situations when it comes to friends it is not their quantity but their quality, or rather the stretch of their influence, that matters.
