Time for a trip to Paddy Power?

I wrote the following in October 2010. Is it still valid?

If it does collapse because of an inability to assemble a untainted jury, the Taoiseach and Minister for Justice should both resign, because they could have legislated to move the trial to the SCC, but chose not to.

“The Guards are saying that a decision will be made soon on possible Anglo Irish prosecutions. Anyone considered a flutter on the almost guaranteed collapse of the trial on the basis that such is the demonisation of the bank that its employees can not get a fair trial?

Of course, if the trial were moved to the Special Criminal Court… after all, isn’t that where we normally try people who attempt to bring down the state?”
