Well, it's all gone a bit Father Ted, hasn't it?

There are times of great national crisis when we need the elder lemons of our society to step in and make things happen. They need to put the greater good above their own petty ambition and be prepared, metaphorically speaking, to lay down their lives for us, the little people.

Yes, yes, yes, we're all meant to be outraged about the Gareth Brooks controversy. Sorry, of course I meant to say the Garth Brooks controversy, but I've been spending so much time listening to our beloved Lord Mayor and two-time IRA jailbird, Christy Burke, that I'm not even sure how to pronounce the guy's name correctly. And if Hizzoner wants to call him Gareth, then that's good enough for me.
