Saturday Survey

Hero of the Week: Bertie Ahern: I admire Mr Ahern for stating that he will take the British to the European Courts if they fail to co-operate with an inquiry into the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

Villain of the Week: Jim Nicholson: The UUP MEP slammed the decision to upgrade the Irish language to official EU status. Grow up Mr Nicholson! It's our language and we have a right to be proud of it!

Funniest Moment of the Week: Tim Henman's loss: This guy is hyped up to massive proportions year after year and we are forced to endure the incredibly irritating "Come on Tim!" chants while Sue Barker and the other BBC commentators gush over this overrated Englishman. Well he was kncoked out in the second round this week!

Dunce of the Week: David McNarry: He failed to become leader of the Ulster Unionists this week and I can't say I'm surprised seeing as this week he called for a ban on nationalist protests against Orange Order parades! Yeah, ban the right to protest! Anything else Mr McNarry? Shall we ban Irish tricolours too? What an idiot.

Celebrity of the Week: Tom Cruise: I'm no fan of his fascination with Scientology, but I must say I was impressed with how Tom dealt with that "reporter" who squirted him with the microphone. The stunt was so stupid that a primary school kid would be embarrassed by it.

Quote of the Week: "I don't want to be getting into a European scene if we can avoid it. It would be far easier if the British system were to co-operate on this, if not we will have to go the other route." - Taoiseach Bertie Ahern threatening legal action against the British if they fail to co-operate with the inquiry into the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

I salute the stance of the Taoiseach. Let's just hope he keeps his word on this matter.
