Poll: Was Stephen Donnelly right to quit the banking inquiry?

Is it better in or out?

ANY CHANCE THAT last week’s banking inquiry controversy would blow over was scuppered by Stephen Donnelly’s decision to step down.

While being supported by some TD’s like Richard Boyd-Barrett and Lucinda Creighton, Minister Leo Varadkar said he felt “let down” by Donnelly’s decision. Former Fine Gael leader Alan Dukes described his decision as “precious”.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin says his party members would not be quitting, preferring to influence it from the inside.

Today’s poll, Was Stephen Donnelly right to quit the banking inquiry?

Poll Results:

Yes, given his reasons it was the correct decision. (3378)
No, he's just lost any chance of influencing it. (1427)
Don't know/care. (368)
