Thursday 3rd March

Here in Ireland coalition talks are progressing slowly we are told, and the news from government buildings is that the situation is worse than they had thought. This good news for coalition building, it means the framework of excuses for an abrupt change in policy is on firm foundations.

Whether it be Fine Gael agreeing to extend their timescale for balancing the budget, or Labour shrinking theirs, we can be pretty sure that the unexpectedly bad situation will be the justification.

Meanwhile the phrase lots more cricket later on Morning Ireland was heard, probably for the first time on that radio programme. Beating England at anything is still sweet.
