Bertie – We’ll Give You A Break!

Our latest best friend is man about town and the face of – Ned Needabed.

Ned caused quite a stir yesterday when he appeared at Dublin Castle to offer beleaguered Taoiseach (that’s Prime Minister to our overseas readers) Bertie Ahern a break from the latest Tribunal kerfuffle. News just in suggests that Bertie went a little further – he’s taking a permanent break from office beginning on May 6th. That’s a little longer than Ned had in mind but you can’t say he didn’t try to dig out a fellow ‘man of the people’.
