Mary jets out -- but not on a state plane this time
Who: Health Minister Mary Harney.
Who? Ooops, former minister Mary Harney, that is. She's been in Cabinet for so long -- she's been a senior minister since way back in 1997 -- that it's hard to envisage a government frontbench without her.
Why? Where's she gone now? Is she off on another leisurely holiday to Thailand? She certainly has the time for a long trip now, as she added to the madness of one of the most bonkers weeks in Leinster House by suddenly resigning just before 9pm on Wednesday night.
