Joe has earned his place in the big house

WE MAY have an explanation for the unwonted nervousness which Mary McAleese displayed during her Aras press conference.

The Posh Spice of the Presidency may have been recovering from the response of the ascetic Joe Higgins to her call informing him she was running for office again.

The Socialist Party leader declined to follow the usual "aren't you wonderful" gushes and instead informed the President that her office was "superfluous and should be abolished".

For his achievement in rendering the President speechless - apparently the response consisted of a nervous laugh followed by the sound of a phone being put down - Fifth Column believes Joe should be elevated to the Presidency immediately and without contest.

After all, he's well used to being incarcerated in large grey institutions.
