Maidir Le: Mahon Tribunal due to report after summer recess
it's 'investigative', not 'adversarial'. At least it'll show him for what he really is and put an end to any international reputation he still has left.
I also think this could provide an opportunity for FF to 'break with the past' by denouncing him if the report is worse than expected. Naturally, they will remain corrupt to the core, but by dumping Bertie in it by perhaps expelling him from the party, they could possibly win back some votes from FG come the next election. Martin and the rest will have to think of doing something radical like this because they're doomed to extinction otherwise.

"Can I ask whether this is what the men of 1916 died for: a bailout from the German chancellor with a few shillings of sympathy from the British chancellor on the side?"
