So the TDs are nearing their "summer break" and no doubt the media will have us all worked up into a frenzy over some issue that we could have went the rest of our natural lives without needing to be concerned with. Have ye noticed any trends in silly season stories and what do you think it will be this year? A murder trial is the obvious and easiest. I also think the U.S. election may water down the impact major silly season stories, but we do need something close to home to worry about for the summer. The economy and the health service will be given a rest as an issue but I expect will return with a vengance in september, but until then, any thoughts?
