Leaving Today..

Unfortunately he's not actually leaving today, but Bertie will be stepping down as Taoiseach and leader of Fianna Fail on May 6th.

I'm amazed that a politician in this country has actually resigned over something (although clearly, as the man himself said, his decision was not influenced by how repeated revisions and excuses had left him tangled up in a web of apparently irreconcilable contradictions).

Given the amount of evidence that came to light I'm equally amazed it took so long for him to fall on his sword.

What a wonderful day! Of course, between listening to coverage on the radio and reading commentary on the blogsphere, today's productivity levels are severely at risk.

Now, if the loathsome squatter Pat Kenny were to lose his court case I'd be in heaven.

Sarah's site has an excellent analysis of the Taoiseach's speech.

Spare a thought for Mario Rosenstock in all of this.
