I love this line

He has fractured his leg after falling down some stairs. It was an accident,
It says something that they have to deny that he was pushed.

Appropriately he was coming down the stairs in St. Lukes.

What was he up to?
Carrying down some of his communion money?

Eoghan Harris in next weeks Sunday Independent:

"Stairs have always had it in for Bertie Ahern. With their superiority complex, brought about by their height and lofty nature, they just can't accept that a salt of the earth man could rise to such heights"

That, or a Jody Corcoran front page headline: "Judge Alan Mahon seen lurking in shadows of St. Lukes stairwell"

I'm not surprised that it happened in St. Lukes - sher it's in an awful state of repair, apprently. We all remember his sob-stories about sleeping on a couch in the grotty upstairs flat, next to a safe full of cash.

Maybe it's in desperate need of renovation? Just like his brand new house in Beresford was

For older readers:

When was the last time a FF leader (or "iar-taoiseach" :)) fell and broke a leg?

And how was that accident convenient to that FF leader?

Speaking from a grassy knoll

“He has fractured his leg after falling down some stairs. It was an accident,” a Fianna Fáil spokewoman said.

Why did the spokeswoman need to make a comment that it was an accident?

Oooh! TWO saucy conspiracy theories!

I think it was probably an assassination attempt by "heavies" related to a certain ex-girlfriend, who shall remain nameless
