Lise Hand: Opposition tries to stick it to Velcro Taoiseach
BERTIE used to drive the Opposition bananas. They'd throw all sorts of mud at him in the hopes that something negative would stick to his Louis Copeland suit.
He was -- at least until the Mahon Tribunal proceedings began to follow him about like a bad smell -- truly the Teflon Taoiseach.
However, although it's a matter of conjecture as to where his successor buys his suits, one thing is certain -- they don't come ready-coated in the same useful substance. Au contraire, Brian is fast becoming more of a Velcro Taoiseach.
