Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Bertie Ahern was involved in a car accident when a car hit the car he was traveling in. At least it's being reported that the other car hit his but you never know with the way the government spins everything. Anyway no one was injured and it was reported that Bertie got out of the car made sure the woman in the other car was ok and then continued on to his meeting in Government Buildings.
Can you imagine being the driver who hits a car and sees the Taoiseach step out. You would absolutely piss yourself. I wonder if there are extra penalty points for hitting a government minister? Anyway the woman should be thankful it was Berties car she hit. If she had been in England and hit Tony Blairs car she would probably have been shot dead before the cars stopped moving. Then of course it wouldn't be spun that she hit him, it would have been spun that it was part a terrorist attack.
