PC on PP McGuinness at Larvatus Prodeo, January 30th:
I don’t usually believe in kicking the down any more than in trashing the newly dead, but in Carey’s case, as in PP McGuinness’s, I’m willing to make an exception.
Paul Keating on PP McGuinness in the Australian Financial Review, quoted in the Sydney Morning Herald, January 31st:
I have made it a rule never to speak ill of the dead ... I am going to break that rule in the case of Paddy McGuinness.
