Thats right ye worthless wee prick, do your U turn - Prime Minister. The Associated Press reported yesterday that Prime Minister Bertie Ahern pledged to allow civil unions for homosexuals. This is about two or three months since he said Ireland wasn't ready the introduction of that particular basic human right.

I love it when they don't even have the basic respect to get the title right though, thats some tasty contempt.

I'd only nitpick in the sense that the same title means different things in different nations (our president and the US president being the most obvious example that springs to mind, senators being another. How do TDs compare to their nearest foreign equivalents?) Trust that if your readership gives two damns about the topic they'll understand "Taoiseach" or go and look it up and find out what it means and where that person stands in the political system.

Inaccurately labelling someone like that is (to me) contemptuous and ignorant and I for one am delighted they did it this time. I'm just sorry there wasn't a typo that turned "Prime Minister" into "Flatulent waste of stem cells".
