A waffler

• Recently there was a video clip on television, showing Bertie Ahern making a speech on the Washington speakers' circuit, where he spoke about looking in the mirror, etc.

Is it time now for Mr Ahern to look in the mirror and say: "You're a waffler. You've been years around here, waffling?" (This is a quote from Mr Ahern in the Dail in 1994.)

This could apply equally to his evidence in the Mahon Tribunal, and also explain why the tribunal took so long!
