The upside of this deal for FF was that Bertie Ahern didn't have to attend the Dáil on 3 Thursdays out of four, the odd one out being the day of Taoiseach's Questions. As it turned out, Da Bert arranged many of his out-of-LH appointments to coincide with TQs day, leaving McCreevy and Cowen to field his questions for him.
    Ah, thank you. I had initially thought Labour, but looked at the seats and didn't see a threat to them so made up FG instead. Glad I'm only partially senile.

    Of course, FG could always undo both measures...
