Referencing NEW values in Trigger

I'm trying to create a generic audit trigger I can add to all my user tables.
This is relatively easy to do. But my issue is that I want to make it Dynamic in that if a new column is added to a table or taken away (product still in early development) I want the trigger to react and continue to audit correctly.

At the moment my idea is to use the information_schema and get details on the table which the trigger is on and select the column details and the NEW value.


insert into testaudit (AuditTime, AuditUser, TableName, ColumnName,NewValue)
select CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), USER(), TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, NEW.COLUMN_NAME from information_schema.columns where Table_name = 'CalledFigures' and Table_schema = 'Ireland';

My problem as you can see from the above is that I can't evaluate the NEW column, I've thought of a loop but I still come back to the evaluate issue.

Any ideas?
I'm using 5.0.15.
