Has the Speaker had plastic surgery on expenses?

Judging from how Les Echos is reporting the fall of Michael Martin, he has:



Not sure who the chap pictured is, but he does not look the re-incarnation of Sir John Trevor, does he? Whoever he is, it might be actionable.

One might note the coincidences connecting Martin with the disgraced Trevor - both have forenames as surnames, both hail from the Celtic fringe, and while Trevor was cross-eyed, one might argue that Martin is either one-eyed or no-eyed. Commenter John has been kind enough to point out that the chap photographed is the Republic of Ireland's Foreign Affairs chap Micheál Martin. Doubtless whoever is in charge of photographs at Les Echos had fat fingers when searching the photo library.

Anyway, as a fine woman once put it, 'Rejoice! Rejoice!'.
