McDowell gets away with it

I see Michael McDowell has managed to squeem his way out of the libel charges brought against him by the editor of the Daily Ireland newspaper, Mairtin O Muilleoir. The law does not allow proceedings against somebody who was acting "on behalf of the government". I can understand this ruling but it says a lot about McDowell considering he saw fit to mock Mr. Muilleoir with the taunt `see you in court' when in reality the Daily Ireland were denied their day in court. Mr. McDowell's comments about the newspaper were disgraceful and show the man in his true light.
