I avoided reports of the shin-dig at the Boyne. The love-in between Fianna Fail and the Unionists. Of course no surprise really that they get along so well since they share the sense of entitlement to power and a resentment that they should be expected to treat minorities with respect. Even I was suprised to learn how determinedly petty they can be. Not one Fine Gael councillor in Meath – not one – was invited to the event. Invitations were easy to come by, but only if you were of the right party. The guns maybe silent, but tribalism hasn’t gone away you know.
Oh well, the Da is gone to Serbia. I doubt he’ll see much there that will top the carry-on here.
