Sniff, sniff - oink oink?!

Sinn Fein had to publicly deny rumours that its party president Gerry Adams had fallen victim to swine flu.

On Tuesday Mr Adams was due to take part in a live public interview at the National College of Ireland on the topic of leadership.

But the announcement that he was forced to cancel due to ‘suspected swine flu’ became an instant talking point among politics watchers.

The truth was eventually laid bare within hours when Sinn Fein issued a statement denying that the party president had Swine Flu.

“He has not contracted Swine Flu. He is currently suffering from a dose of the flu,” a spokesperson said.
