Vatican exit

•So Ireland is pulling out its ambassadors from the Vatican and Iran -- out of the blue. If our feisty Tanaiste could announce that out of the blue, why couldn't he announce that Ireland is not paying €730m to unsecured Anglo Irish Bank bondholders? I remember Eamon Gilmore shouting: "It's Frankfurt's way or Labour's way."

Well, it turns out to be the Anglo Irish way after all and it's not what I expected from Mr Gilmore in return for his enormous salary. Here is my slogan for Labour's next election: "Labour does not work."
