Shane Ross: Bertie 'the artist' pulls tax coup

LAST Wednesday, two brown envelopes arrived on the same day in equally threatening covers. One was from the Circuit Court, the other from the Revenue Commissioners.

It was a toss-up which envelope to open first. I opted for the Circuit Court envelope. Good choice. It was a jury summons.

Luckily, senators are exempt from jury service. Presumably on the grounds that we are totally corruptible or pushovers to intimidate.
