Here’s why Gerry is now a servant of the Crown.
Here’s how the news emerged.
Here’s the official confirmation which came later.
On Tuesday, Gerry Adams said this on his somewhat idiosyncratic blog:
“Your man reckons these are exciting – ‘dramatic times’ – in the politics of our small island. Especially in the south. Flann O Brien couldn’t have written the script. The political and economic crisis has been variously described as a ‘circus’, a ‘comedy of errors’, ‘a farce’ and some other things that this blog could not post.”
Gerry was enjoying the misfortune of others a little too much. Less than 24 hours later he would be the centre of a drama, a circus, a comedy of errors, a farce of his own.
The next blog post by the Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead will be an interesting read.
