Alan Kelly was on Marian yesterday, sounding eerily like a young Brian Cowen, as he talked about how he likes to tell it like it is. His main underlying message was that people will re-elect the current Government because people want stability.

As Alan talked about stability, the West was undergoing one of the biggest natural disasters in living memory. Half the country was swimming in its own waste, and there was not only more rain on the way but, just in case things weren't apocalyptic enough, there was snow coming too.

And as Alan talked about stability, a councillor - who was until recently a member of the major party in Government - was going viral with his own dance, a take on the Macarena that involved his unique patented moves for sliding bungs off the table and into his four pockets.
