Here’s something to give Finance Minister Brian Lenihan a bit of a laugh as he embarks on a long and arduous journey in his battle against cancer.
It seems that our Minister has become a bit of a sex-symbol!!
The level of support and good will out there for Brian Lenihan over the past fortnight has been unprecedented. As the Facebook site says - Politics Aside, We Wish Brian Lenihan Well.
One poster even went so far as to describe him as ‘our handsome Finance Minister’!
Well thankfully, our ‘handsome’ Finance Minister is a man with a good sense of humour and a rosy outlook on life. And he is confident that his handsome looks won’t suffer from the treatment that lies ahead.
“The advice is that the famous dark and indestructible hair of mine is not going to be destroyed by this treatment,” he said.
This column wishes the Minister every good wish in the tough times ahead.
