THOSE working towards gathering a clear set of facts surrounding the treatment of whistleblowers within An Garda Síochána have expressed a desire to finish up the Disclosures Tribunal with the knowledge that they have received at least one straight answer.
“Is that too much ask?” one person involved directly in the tribunal stated, after having to spend day after day sitting through passive aggressive remarks and testimony which could be described at best as ‘extremely confusing and unhelpful’.
“Look at the end of the day, I’m earning money no matter what, but it’d really change up how dull and predictable this has all become if just one person would give one honest answer,” added a journalist covering the tribunal.
Confused by the predictably guarded testimony delivered by some individuals who seem concerned about preserving their reputation above trading in honest, straightforward and clear information, some members of the public queried if it was written into the constitution that tribunals had to be filled with vague, convoluted and meandering evidence.
“I can understand why people would think witnesses are required by law to deliver a senselessly senseless sense of what the fact of the matter fact is, factually speaking, but that’s not the case, thank God, and everyone is actually expected to help achieve truth,” confirmed one veteran of the tribunal circuit.
“Here we fucking go again,” cried one journalist attending the tribunal when the latest witness began their evidence with ‘pertaining to the maintaining of an ordered order of the order, with a desire to inform you of the information informed upon me, I would have say ‘what was the question again?'”
