I’ve resigned as Prime Minister of Ireland

When the Irish Times opened up their Ireland.com domain to free email registration recently I quickly nabbed the novelty address of primeminister@ireland.com reckoning that would be far more beneficial to the cultivation of international relations than the parochial taoiseach@ireland.com 😉

I sent a few test emails without trouble and drafted a concilliatory message to Sarkozy before…. real world email got in the way. Sadly it appears I didn't read the Term and Conditions of use too well (who the hell ever does?) because I missed this bit –

In particular, "c. impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, an Ireland.com official, forum leader, guide or host, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent an affiliation with a person or entity;"

That's the bit Ronan from tech support kindly pointed out to me this morning before adding – "Having an email name such as primeminister@ireland.com has the potential to be misconstrued, so we have had no alternative to lock the account."

Now why didn't I send that note to Obama while I had the chance?

    That’s a shame. Prime Time have just finished their series on Bertie and I’m sure will be looking for another faux scandal to document. Watch out…
