Rats jump ship . . . Any point voting? . . . North ignored

I am reminded of a television programme I used to watch many years ago called 'The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin'.

At the mention of his mother-in-law, Reginald would automatically reflect on the backdrop of a hippopotamus running by, in some sort of Pavlovian response.

When I read of FF TDs and ministers not standing for re-election, my Pavlovian response includes a ship and some rapidly departing rats shouting: "I didn't do it!"
