Do they do refunds?

Kudos to Res Publica and EC1 Cruise Control for picking up on this story by the BBC about our devilishly handsome Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and the money he spends on his appearance.

Tony Blair has taken some flak for the money he has spent on his appearance which tops £1,800 but that's nothing compared to our very own Taoiseach who has spent a whopping €28,000 on his, or to put it into perspective, £19,000!

If you think that's bad, the office of the Taoiseach has also confirmed that since 1997, Bertie's appearance has cost the Irish taxpayer €167,000 (£115,895)!

I think to call it a waste of money would be an understatement!
