Time for curtain to fall on Brian's slapstick panto

Watching RTE's Frontline debate last week made me want to cry out, like the rest of the public, and say 'bring on the fighting bears'. The feeling grows, with the radio and TV debate on the economy, but it was crystallised with the Frontline debate.

On the panel was Leo Varadkar of Fine Gael and Labour's Pat Rabbitte, who set out their respective stalls with cogency and passion. They differed on public service cuts but were reassuringly similar on the need for a review of the IMF bailout. They are in election mode.
