The President has referred the new banking bill to the Council of State for discussion. All former prime ministers are entitled to attend meetings of the Council and tonight I received this pithy email from my friend Mr The Nut:
- Why is Albert Reynolds able to take part in the Council of State when he couldn’t give evidence at the tribunal due to a claimed ‘cognitive impairment’ ?
- Why is Bertie Ahern ruling on a banking Bill when he hasn’t even got a bank account?
Two excellent questions, in my opinion.
