Alas, poor Bertie, time to go
It really does look like the curtain is about to close on Bertie Ahern's tawdry tenure as Weasel-In-Chief of this country.
But don't break out the Bolly just yet; whatever Faustian pact he has made seems to have given him more lives than an absurdly lucky cat.
But with a new opinion poll this week showing that nearly half the population think he is lying -- which doesn't say much for the observational skills of the other half, in fairness -- maybe we are finally going to be rid of him. Of course, a more honourable man would have fallen on his sword a long time ago but, hey, that's not the Fianna Fail way.
