Colum Kenny : Pizza prank defies political reason
'I don't rat on people," says Deputy Tom Hayes of Fine Gael. He was refusing to identify the four people whom he says were with him when a bizarre practical joke was played on another TD on the eve of the latest austerity Budget.
Late at night, a cross-party group phoned protesters who included independent deputy Mattie McGrath and offered them free pizza.
Michael McCarthy TD, who pretended to be an Italian, conned McGrath into responding.
