John Drennan: Battle of the natural political blondes
As part of our 'backing Biffo beyond insanity' policy, the Sketch has decided to help Brian Cowen define the Government's economic policy in one snappy sentence. After all, if Bertie could say "the boom is getting boomer", should Mr Cowen proudly claim "the bust is getting bustier", he would at least cheer up half of the public.
Happily, there is no need to cheer up a Fine Gael party who has apparently started to party before the election has even begun. That's the only conclusion the Sketch could come to after Deirdre Clune's claim she had recently visited a "local head shop in Dublin near Leinster House" and under "an advertisement of legal highs, purchased a packet called 'Blow -- Intense Euphoria' 18+, containing five pills for €30".
As the Sketch sighed "just when you think you know a person", we were even more concerned by Deirdre's revelation that the back of the packet says "plant food, not fit for human consumption".
