Wolfgang Münchau (of the FT) a highly respected commentator doesnt mince his words on the Fianna Fail party....
http://tinyurl.com/2fbl4yr........on Tuesday, 30 September 2008, when Brian Cowen, the Irish prime minister, gave a blanket guarantee for the entire banking sector. His decision bounded the other eurozone leaders into following suit. The rest is history.
I would go as far as to classify the decision as one of the most catastrophic political decisions taken in post-war Europe.
Well done, Fianna Fail, 1st again!!!!
