    Default Bertie Ahern pronounces Dubai to be a "great success"

    Just heard this on Matt Cooper. He played a clip of Ahern praising Dubai as a model of visionary development and a great success. No wonder he made such a balls of the Irish Economy

    Bertie was always a Dubaious character

    Right gotcha, misread your first comment

    Truly Da Bert missed his true calling, he has the gift of comic timing, he could be making millions on the English club circuit pedling his unique brand of Paddywhackery.
