Oh Lord what a complete waste of time.


IN the real world, the biggest challenge facing our capital city is the 1,000 families which are homeless.

In the Monty Pythonesque world of Dublin City Council, a more troubling matter is changing the name of the Lord Mayor to something along the lines of Civic Mayor.

This will no doubt bring a warm glow to the hundreds who risk freezing to death on the streets.

"It's a relic of feudalism," says Cllr Michael O'Brien, sounding like a character from The Life Of Brian giving out about the Romans.

The Lord Mayor's title should be changed alright - to Night Mayor until this scandalous homelessness crisis is sorted out.

Those involved in this time-wasting nonsense should hang their heads in shame.
