Santa comes to Sinn Fein

It seems that Christmas has come early for the politicians and workers inside Leinster House.

Just a year ago, Sinn Fein’s Caoimhghin O Caolain claimed that Finance Minister Brian Lenihan had ‘cancelled Santa Claus’ thanks to his brutal budget.

Now it seems that Sinn Fein has resurrected Santa Claus and yesterday paraded him in front of Leinster House.

Santa was joined by another bearded figure - Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams - for the launch of the party’s campaign to have the Christmas Bonus Social Welfare payment restored.

No doubt, Mr Claus himself had his hands full quizzing all the TDs as to whether they were naughty or nice during the past year.

But the little TDs should be warned - due to the recession there is a good chance that all they will get under the tree on Christmas morning will be an IOU note, signed by Taoiseach Brian Cowen!
