    Maybe we'll finally get a figure on the number of frogs in Ireland. Its the not knowing I can't stand.
    Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.

    "For a very long time the Green Party ..... Our patience has reached an end....breakdown in trust... will support Finance Bill from Opposition parties.. Eamon Ryan has contacted the ?? party yesterday and they agreed to support the Finance Bill"

    "Proud of (eco) achievements, Civil Partnership, education and the arts" Regret lack of time.

    Thanks party members for support....etc. etc.

    "Responsibility, reform, steadfastness etc. etc."

    "We felt we had a duty to stay in Government to pass the Finance Act"

    "Can the Finance Act be passed by Friday?" - Lenihan said this morning that it can't.

    This whole exercise seems to be designed to get the Finance Bill through without question.

    They wait until the country is broken beyond repair and then jump ship, too late now, should have been done before NAMA.

    If Cowen is on the sauce today, he could decide enough is enough and just go to the aras

    If he can find it....

    John Gormley has just confirmed that he has been (heavily) lobbied by the Department of Finance (Cardiff?) that the Finance Bill must be passed.
