RTE radio have just announced that the Mahon Tribunal is (as suspected) postponing the next phase of its hearings until after the election. What a fortuitous coincidence. It does recommence right after the election – when the haggling will be going on about who will be in the Government.
Also, the brother has rowed in with his euro’s worth on the timing of the election. I am sure that if I hadn’t beaten him to the punch he would have out-pendatried me as he is, to borrow PJ O’Rourke’s description, ‘the political nut who lives around here’.
I’m just a commuter whose opinion appears not to matter to a Taoiseach who seems to be out of touch with the realities of Celtic Tiger life.
