Corrib New Year impasse

Meanwhile, Mr Monaghan told The Mayo News yesterday there was a serious moral anomaly in a regulator – Mayo County Council, in this case – ‘wining and dining’ a developer. “At best, the dinner was highly inappropriate in that it was effectively the regulator wining and dining the developer, and even worse still, at the public’s expense,” said Mr Monaghan. He said due to the controversy around the project, it was highly ‘imprudent’ of the Council to fraternise in such a way. “It leaves the community in no doubt as to the Council’s partiality,” he added.

Putin has given us a wake-up call: we’re vulnerable to blackmail

Gazprom under Mr Putin is about control. Gazprom has been moving downstream in Europe, buying up hunks of gas infrastructure and developing joint ventures with European companies all the way “from the well to the end consumers”. It is moving in on Europe's energy assets unobstructed despite the strict limits - and foul play - that dog foreign investors in Russian oil and gas fields, where Royal Dutch Shell and BP have got badly burnt.
