WHAT Seanie FitzPatrick is to the broke and hopping-mad electorate, Ivor Callely is to the beleaguered denizens of Leinster House.

Far from being amused by the ongoing expenses soap opera starring the brass-necked, bi-locating senator, his Oireachtas colleagues are increasingly taking the hump with him.

At a time when politicians are discovering the joys of frugality -- travelling at the back of the plane, keeping receipts for stuff, clocking in and out of work -- the antics of Ivor simply serve to confirm the skint voters' darkest fears that our politicians are still far too flaithiulach with the taxpayers' ever-dwindling funds.
