Hope you enjoyed Christmas, had a good time last night and aren’t feeling too bleary today. Perhaps you are suffering from nasal congestion, and need to call in to Brian Cowen’s constituency office for a cure, or maybe if you live in County Meath you feel like making a visit to Minister Dempsey’s office and asking for a dig-out – after all with all the pension entitlements he has accumulated he might be able to help you.
Bertie in a cupboard. The Taoiseach in a bunker and a virtual Enda on the Fine Gael website wanting the public to give him ideas. Welcome to the surreal world of modern Irish politics. No wonder people are confused. They are also angry, disillusioned and they want change.
To be honest at this stage I don’t care what was discussed at the infamous golf outing at Druids Glen. The Taoiseach’s reputation is already trashed. Information has to be dragged out of him. It is described as a social event, and yet it is said weighty economic matters were covered. His driver was at the dinner, presumably so he could take him home. Isn’t it grand for some.
