Kim Bielenberg: George is back -- now current affairs can be a bit of fun again

WHEN George Lee stood up in the Dail to make his maiden speech just three years ago, the newly elected Fine Gael TD said: "There is no going back now.''

How wrong could he be. Yesterday's announcement that he is to become a presenter on 'Prime Time' was the highlight of RTE's current affairs shake-up, and a sign that he is well and truly back in the fold.

Like a beast who has been forced to prowl around his cage out in Donnybrook for too long -- well, actually, for just two years -- Lee has been released from political quarantine.
