    Default Brian Lenihan - Under attack in the house of commons

    Lenihan the butt of Commons joke - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

    BRITAIN'S shadow chancellor appeared to take a swipe at Finance Minister Brian Lenihan yesterday during the House of Commons debate on swingeing spending cutbacks in the UK.
    Mr Johnson said: "That was the Irish Minister for Finance last autumn, when he told the Irish parliament that his austerity plan meant they had turned the corner and four months later they slid back into recession."
    That's what people think about our jokenomic strategy.

    Mr. Johnson must have been reading posts here . Would anyone here in our Parilament dare say such a thing about Brian, he is a saint and Mama Rourke might handbag them !
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    That just shows how slow on the uptake the UK Labour Party is.

    Over here we've known for almost 2 years that Bozo is a clueless, articulate spoofer who isn't qualified or competent to be in charge of a kid's piggy bank.

    He's right.

    It does lead to a larger problem that our government has zero credibility and rightly so. They have been wrong so many times and never right that it would be madness to give them credibility.

    We really need an election and a new government so much and every day our government denies us that, is further evidence that they don't care about Ireland.

    It's a given that any member of the UK Labour Party is, ipse facto stupid.

    But what was "very stupid" about putting one of Bozo's unending stream of lies on the public record in the House of Commons?

    Predictable that FF'ers would try to portray it as an insult to Ireland rather than the government being the butt of the joke
