    Brian cowen - to sit for official portrait

    Did I just hear this correctly? Esteemed failure, and all round f**k-up Brian Cowen is to sit for the official portrait soon...at a presumed cost of up to 10'000 euro.

    Are we for real? Is someone actually going to sanction this payment for the country's biggest failure? Another austerity budget looming and VdeP nearly broke from looking after the increasing volumes of poor and Brian is going to sit for a portrait. I want to know why we are doing this. I want to know why he can't pay for it himself.

    Surely the memory of him is good enough. 10'000k. Just hang a blank canvas. We are a stupid nation.

    The only portrait he should be sitting for is his mug shot at Mountjoy!

    If we have one of other failures like Reynolds, Haughey and FitzGerarld, then why not? When Kenny gets added, it will be a proper little rogues gallery

    Providing the €10K doesn't go to some wealthy artist who pays no tax then I don't really have a problem with this.

    Eh..."AN OFFICIAL, GOVERNMENT-commissioned painting"

    Why are the current government commissioning a painting of Brian Cowen?
