Duo lock horns over rhino jibe
ALAN Shatter was again involved in bitter Dail exchanges when he accused Fianna Fail's justice spokesman of having "a neck as thick as a rhinoceros's behind".
Niall Collins (pictured) was trying to pin down Mr Shatter on when gardai recruitment will start again. He accused the minister of being "like the proverbial goal posts". He said: "He moves around the pitch every time someone tries to take a shot and tie him down."
But Mr Shatter said: "The deputy has yet again illustrated that he has a neck as thick as a rhinoceros's behind."
Mr Collins called it "exceptionally personal" and said Mr Shatter should be man enough to enter the chamber and engage on issues, not insults.
