It always intrigues me why Bertie anointed Biffo as his successor, with laying on of hands. What story lies behind this, was Biffo just loyal to Bertie, knew what was going on but kept mum. There was no evidence that he was a good minister, let alone a brilliant one. And was it not a gutless FF party that allowed this. A few of them like Dermot Ahern and Martin waited a while, but they all got in hehind Biffo as the only candidate with amen chorus. Some party, some courage. Or did Biffo have it all sewn up with his pint drinking colleagues on the back benches and who are now turning sour.
