Not a mention of safety on the radio this morning though?
Why the change in focus from safety to money? It seems to be all about money now - how the Irish NATION is losing on Ray Burke's deal 50 or so years ago. But surely it was a safety issue that we were supposed to be empathising with them about - all that stuff about thin pipes that was going to let all shells valuable gas escape into the atmosphere killing the hundreds of thousands living in the area as it exploded?
So will Shell to Sea have to rename itself now that safety is no longer an issue even worth mentioning on a prime time peak listening morning radio interview?
Perhaps they got the tablets handed to them from down the mountain and now they know that they alone can really decide how Ireland Inc should manage its money. Regular politics - stuff like getting elected - pshhaaw that's beneath them. Jerry Cowley lost his seat and he for sure pinned his electoral colours to the shell to sea safety argument in North Mayo.
That rte interview this morning did not mention the word safety once. A lapse on the part of the interviewer though not to ask why the change in emphasis - a fiscal policy?
But what could they call themselves now that shell to sea is obviously irrelevant. Any suggestions?
