INSIDE POLITICS - PAY AGAIN

Charlie Bird believes we are all going to wake up one morning over Christmas and:

a. see mummy kissing daddy under the Mistletoe
b. see Santa as he disappears back up the chimney
c. discover that Bertie has gallantly turned down his pay rise.

If 'c' happens, then I can happily declare that I still believe in 'b'

c. discover that Bertie has gallantly turned down his pay rise.

The Phoenix (pg3, 30/11/07) reckons Our Dear Leader will turn down the pay rise. Something to do with selfless-ness & the new national pay agreement talks in the New Year...

Elsewhere (RTE News?), I heard that Bertie hadn't signed the Statutory Instrument to implement the pay rises. Is Bertie lazy, busy elsewhere, or 'the most cunning, the most devious' of them all?

Ah, Harry!
I see you're going for (c) aka the 'Carlsberg' solution...

Now do something Iiiiirrriiiisssh?

Maybe the 'Bertie Reel' (Irish dancing involving fancy footwork) or maybe the the 'Digout Dirge' a poem in our dear leader's native spin?
