FF decides against raining on this parade
THERE was silence in the Dail as Big Phil spoke about the progress being made by the Constitutional Convention. Alas for the Environment Minister, the silence couldn't be attributed to a chamber full of rapt deputies hanging upon his every utterance.
It was just that the opposition benches were occupied by one figure, Maureen O'Sullivan.
There were a couple of dutiful government TDs present who were presumably trying – but failing miserably – to take the bare look off things.
