So the Wall Street Journal has noticed Bertie's "News of the World" advert.
Note the use of the word "squats".
Thanks Bertie - now the world can happily resume assuming the Irish are all drunken, wife-beating, Lucky-Charms eaters. Those few years when we had a great economy (I'm talking 1992-2000 by the way, not the "economic growth" of the bubble years) will be written off as a fluke by the rest of the world.
Just a real super job there, Bert.
P.S. Isn't it a delightful coincidence that the Taoiseach who allowed BSkyB to enter the Irish marketplace now has a column with a paper owned by Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Sky? And his daughter's publishers are also owned by Murdoch! Murdoch must have a lot of faith in the Ahern family. As we all do, by the way. They've earned every penny, every position, and every opportunity that has come their way.
