All that was missing from the environs of Leinster House yesterday was a protest by the Moving Crib decrying a new tax on gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Oh it was fierce busy altogether -- there were rallies outside the gates, and ructions within. There were pot-bangers and head-bangers.
There was a fake Willie (O'Dea) and the transmogrification of our finance minister into our Dear Leader, Brian Jong-Il. Even the dark shade of Cromwell stalked the chamber. But there was, alas, no horse outside.
