• I have been left speechless twice this past week and it was through no fault of my own. Firstly, it was when a political commentator said on an RTE programme that "come the next general election you could very well see Fianna Fail back in government". Now if that wouldn't unnerve you somewhat, I don't expect that anything else of an idiotic nature would either. I can't believe that people would be so forgiving, suffer memory loss on such a scale, or just wouldn't give a damn to allow this to happen.
It is true that they are making a concerted effort to dispense themselves of all blame associated with horrific governmental decisions that brought this country to its knees and ultimate begging bowl status.
The second time for me to get my vocal cords in knots was when I listened to the Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin quoting part of DUP leader Peter Robinson's diatribe against Sinn Fein as part of his commemoration speech at the graveside of Wolfe Tone at Bodenstown, Co Kildare.
