POLITICIAN AND PART-TIME romantic novelist Alan Shatter works Saturdays, but he doesn’t do ties at the weekend if this picture is anything to go by.

At a campaign stop at Ballinteer Shopping Centre in Dublin this morning, Shatter posed with what TheJournal.ie estimates is at least four buttons unbuttoned.

The debate surrounding the Court of Appeal referendum certainly needed some sexing up but we’re not sure this is was what people had in mind.
