Bertie's legal team legs it

When Grainne Carruth’s sensational evidence emerged at the Mahon Tribunal yesterday Bertie Ahern’s legal team said they were reserving any statements until they got an opportunity to talk to Ahern. Clearly, they were rattled.

When Carruth confirmed today that she did indeed lodge Sterling on Ahern’s behalf his legal team were nowhere to be seen.

Could it be that they’re advising him on how to write a letter of resignation?
