Haughey hubris

• It is grotesquely hilarious to witness the Haughey family receiving an apology from an estate agent because it mistakenly claimed that Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi and Margaret Thatcher had visited the former Taoiseach's home in Kinsealy.

It appears that the family is concerned that the former Taoiseach's reputation could be sullied if associated with these particular people.

Whatever about Col Gaddafi's reputation Mrs Thatcher's good name would certainly be damaged by any association with the disgraced former Taoiseach.
