Huzzah! Bertie Ahern, head of the Irish government, has resigned. He’s a crook, and should never have lasted as long in power as he did.
You can watch RTE’s news reports about it here: http://www.rte.ie/live/
I found his brother’s comment amusing, on being asked what he thought of Bertie’s decision to resign:
He’s usually right in the decisions he makes
I would think he definitely is not right in the decisions he makes – that decision he made to accept £450,000 in brown envelopes was probably pretty wrong.
