Well I think it's still premature to speculate on the report itself
just yet.

Should the report be as clear as indicated, the opposition should really
really try to hammer home that there was a gap of some 8 days, 2
joint-select committee meetings and a recommendation from that committee
that no money be spent on the system between when the Oireachtas was
informed in no uncertain terms of the clear problems and the contract
being signed under his authorisation.

This basic fact of timing has totally eluded the press and politicians
in the last two years.
