Saturday Survey

Hero of the Week: Simon Wiesenthal: I was saddened to hear of the death of veteran Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal this week. A true hero. RIP.

Villain of the Week: Gerry Adams: This week he renewed his bid to have the killers of Garda Jerry McCabe freed. Totally undemocratic and utterly disgraceful.

Funniest Moment of the Week: Edward Horgan's piece: A hilarious load of claptrap.

Dunce of the Week: Arlene Foster: She's got herself into a tizzy after a Monaghan judge refused to call 'Derry' 'Derry'. I hear she's going to bring the matter up with Justice Minister Michael McDowell. Please! With the DUP focusing on that, as well as the Colombia Three, one would be fogiven for thinking the DUP is becoming more nationalist!

Luckiest persons of the Week: The Swiss: Roy Keane is set to miss the match with Switzerland on October 12th! Nooooooo!

My favourite moment of the week: Adams' approval rating: In an opinion poll in the Irish Examiner, poor oul' Gerry's approval rating with the Irish public went down by 11% to a pretty dismal 31% overall (behind Mary Harney!). 34% expressed dissatisfaction with him. Beautiful!

Quote of the Week: "We need to make peace on terror, not war" - Edward Horgan at indymedia.

Anti-war protesters, eh?

United Irelander's Busiest Day of the Week: Monday
