Barbara Scully: In our souls we're Mediterranean, not stuck in 'land of eternal winter'

As Bob Geldof reminded us, many moons ago, lots of us don't like Mondays.

Every week, in a bid to put off the arrival of Monday, I find myself stuck to the sofa late on Sunday night, unable to move, putting myself through the torture of watching 'The Week In Politics'. There is nothing wrong with the programme or indeed the lovely Aine Lawlor but #TWIP (as it's referred to on the Twitter Machine) is usually a very depressing way to finish the weekend.

Over the last few weeks it has been particularly bad as we are subjected to watching the numpties we have elected to Dáil Éireann having huge difficulty in figuring out how to form a government, let alone even begin to sort out the mess previous numpties have left the country in.
