The Zappone controversy

 

Sir, – It would appear that receiving certain sacraments, while adhering to all the necessary social distancing measures, is forbidden, but hosting an outdoor function for the “great and the good” is not only acceptable but prefaces being appointed to a nebulous position in the UN.

Instead of the so-called “freedom of expression” vagueness, why not have some openness and transparency as to what exactly is going on with our Government? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – I would like to confirm that I was not one of the 50 that attended the event at the Merrion Hotel. However, I remain available for appointment as special envoy to the UN. – Yours, etc,
