Clowns to the left, jokers to the right
From Boris to Enda, from Brexit to Nama, clownish politicians are stitching us up, writes Gene Kerrigan
Over the past 10 days, politicians on our neighbouring isle have reached heights of hilarity of which Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise couldn't have dared to dream.
At the same time, our own politicians have maintained their richly deserved reputation for - as they would no doubt phrase it - punching above their weight in the entertainment department.
I cannot remember a time when the political cabaret has been so enjoyable, and at the same time so scary.
