Bertie the good shepherd

Bertie Ahern has comprehensively routed the back-bencher revolt and they have agreed to shelve the proposed Fianna Fail "1922 Committee".

To paraphrase Dennis Healey, Bertie seems to have found his back-benchers' rebellion to be equivalent to being savaged by a flock of dead sheep.

Whatever Bertie did or said in response to their public bleating, all we're hearing from them now now is the silence of the lambs.
