Election, shmelection..

We might not be actually voting until tomorrow, but Prime Minister Tony Blair and Taoiseach Bertie Ahern already have a convenient meeting scheduled to discuss which way we’re voting – on Friday on the fringes of the European Council’s spring summit in Brussels. Oh and, according to the Taoiseach’s spokeswoman, “Mr Ahern said the two governments and the political parties were entering into an intense period of activity in the following three weeks”. What’s this election actually for again? I suppose we should be grateful that, at least, they’ve decided to hold back on publishing the latest IMC report – presented to the two governments last Thursday – until next week.. after the election.. shouldn’t we?
