Nicola Anderson: Kelly's spirit undampened as he takes up super soaker for last ministerial speech
On what was almost certain to be his last speech to the Dáil as minister, an embittered AK47 opened fire on his colleagues with a water pistol.
A souped up super soaker, no less, which he had rigged up to simultaneously billow out clouds of steam - and jets of bile. It wasn't pretty.
There was his sheer rage and choking frustration for one thing. Alan Kelly went a peculiar shade of purplish red as he got everything off his chest.
