Martin has gone off to America to persuade Irish Americans to be “elated” (according to todays IN) at the IRAs recent surrender.

I understand that Gerry will be off to the European Parliament next Wedensday for an “informal question and answer” session with MEPs. Alas, rumour has it, the President and Vice President of the Commission have refused a meeting. As have the leaders of the EPP-ED, the Socalist and Liberal groups! This leaves the extreme left (which includes the two Shinners), the Greens and the extreme right. Sounds like a pretty empty room to me!

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.
