Virtual Bertieland is out of this world

Bertie Ahern threw another wobbler last week. There was a time when Mr Ahern was an unfailingly amiable sort. Nothing would rattle him. Whatever the travails he faced, he'd shake his head, sigh regretfully and move on. Since his third general election victory, Mr Ahern has been uncharacteristically aggressive. These days, he seethes at every opportunity. Boy, does he seethe.

Since the evening of his election victory, when he went on television and foam gathered around his mouth as he denounced the media, Mr Ahern's been in wobbler mode.
