I understand what Deputy Donnelly is saying but I do not believe the history in the House backs it up, except perhaps in the past two years. I can think of a member of my party who was investigated. My party was involved in setting up the beef tribunal, which went after Fianna Fáil Ministers and former leaders. Our party set up the McCracken tribunal and went after one of our former Taoisigh. Our party set up the Flood tribunal, which resulted in one of the current members of the Cabinet resigning. I had better stop before I say too much.
