ALL year the lady has been tormenting us. And all week we have been love bombing her.
Christine Lagarde, French Finance Minister and no friend of Ireland, has become the darling of our Cabinet.

"I would anticipate," enthused the lively Lucinda, "that we would be very well disposed to her candidature." Christine had been testing the waters for her campaign to succeed Dominique Strauss-Kahn as IMF boss.
