Time for talent


Madam, – On Sunday, while following news reports from Brussels on the emerging detail of the IMF/EU deal, we suffered a power-cut. Clearly no time was being wasted in implementing the austerity measures.

When power was restored about an hour later, during the Taoiseach’s televised news conference, the on-screen programme guide indicated that we were watching The All-Ireland Talent Show. You couldn’t make it up! – Yours, etc,
