    It may have been false at the time but I'd say it set a fair few people thinking about doing it!

    No, don't think RTE do apologies unless they're forced by the courts. I remember numerous headlines in the recent past concerning people sleeping in Garda stations, an awful racket made about it entirely and yet the same person was up in court for robbing hundres of pounds worth of a shops stock, not the first time either and not a word about it, not a tinkle. Is it any wonder they're going bust?

    I don't blame RTE for this at all. And I've read articles about the lady you mention noproblem being up in court.

    What is really funny about that is that she was a postergirl for the Homeless March recently.

    Leave Michael D alone.
    He'll need his rental income to make ends meet when he had to live on his Presidential pension... and his Ministerial pension... and his University pension. That will be €140,000 + €88,000 + €30,000 respectively. That's just €258,000 a year. I'm sure he'll be able to supplement that with speaking engagements and as Ireland's greatest living poet he'll be getting a few bob from that too. I think he'll be alright.
