Blinded by optimism, Robert Troy mistakenly believed “it’ll never happen to me”

Optimism-bias has a lot to answer for – the flawed logic of “it’ll never happen to me”. The Law of Averages states that most of us will at some point be caught doing something we shouldn’t or not doing something we shouldn’t. But people have a default belief in events that come their way.

Which brings me to Fianna Fáil’s Robert Troy, who should have known better than to be sloppy about his obligations under the ethics legislation, but didn’t. Also to Micheál Martin and Leo Varadkar who should have known better than to keep defending him when questions about his mistakes arose but didn’t.
