You may have already heard this, but I missed it. Last week Eamon Dunphy interviewed former government press secretary Mandy Johnston.
The interview includes her thoughts on her times with Charlie McCreevy and of course with Bertie Ahern.
"..my role wasn’t to make to me popular, I was there to make a politician popular or to help explain a politician’s policy that’s all I was there for, I had no interest in endearing myself to journalists and I’m not afraid of the media, and so I told the truth did what I had to do for my political masters and I couldn’t make any apologies for it, everbody can’t be popular, sometimes yes you have to be the tough person."
