My week: Pearse Doherty

Monday: You may say I'm a schemer, but according to the latest opinions I'm not the only one. Sinn Fein's up again by four points. Not that we take any notice of polls. Except when they tell us exactly what we want to hear.

This is the first week in ages we won't have to face questions about Gerry's leadership, after we finally got him to publicly admit he won't be in charge forever. Now we can concentrate on holding ministers to account for their crimes against the poor and needy, such as actually making decisions they can be held accountable for, rather than sitting in the wings, sniping, like we do.

Tomorrow in Doll Eireann, I'll be getting my teeth into the finance minister at the Budget Oversight Committee. That's the one you've never heard of because the limelight's being hogged by those prima donnas at the Public Accounts Committee.
