IN 1992 Galileo was welcomed back to the fold of the Catholic Church by Pope John Paul II and last week Homer Simpson was 'converted' to the faith. Surely now it's time that Father Ted was made an honorary bishop?

In the past two Budgets it was precisely these two groupings that were asked to give the most.
The wages of workers in the public service (most of whom are on quite modest salaries) were cut by 15pc plus the 2pc income levy, while social welfare has been reduced by 5pc.
Perhaps it is now time for others to play their part?

If Fine Gael came to power, what difference would it make? The party would have to inherit Fianna Fail's poison chalice. I wish people would stop believing that an election would resolve our present mess.
