Hearts and Minds: interview with Bertie

Bertie gets tough tonight: “…in his first considered interview since December,the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern reflects on the fallout from the Northern Bank raid and the McCartney murder. He says there’ll be no formal talks until Sinn Fein come up with a plan for ending IRA criminality”.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
