Ian O'Doherty: Oh no! Say it ain't so
Do we really want to spend all our time watching Bryan Dobson appearing on our television, metaphorically wearing one of those black caps you used to see judges wear when they were about to pronounce the death sentence for someone?
I'm sure Dobson is a perfectly nice chap but at this stage I react to his face coming into view with a terrified shriek and then run out of the room with my hands over my ears muttering "make the bad man go away, make the bad man go away".
Nope, it seems that the deeper into the quicksand we go, the more we need something to lift us out of our emotional morass.
