Lise Hand: Brian on a power trip as huggy-wuggy heave turns into battle of the airwaves

Really? Well then fair play to the Taoiseach for dreaming up the cunning PR wheeze of inviting the media pack to have a chat with him after touring the control room of Eirgrid yesterday afternoon.

For Eirgrid is the centre of power, you see. The place where there are literally levers of power which are pressed to zap electricity to light up the nation. What a handy place for Brian to pop up, bang slap in the middle of a power-struggle for the leadership of Fianna Fail.

Most serendipitous indeed.
