We've come a long way in 1,000 days -- mostly down
'I'm told that in your present manifestation the Fianna Fail/Green government is today a thousand days in office," Eamon Gilmore informed the Taoiseach in the Dail yesterday afternoon.
One thousand days, eh?
Assuming that the Labour leader has got his sums right -- and let's face it, the political application of mathematical statistics frequently results in two plus two equalling some handy number other than four -- we've come a long way in those 1,000 days. A long way down, sadly.
