    Default Who backed Cowen but castigated him to V Browne show

    Last night VB spoke of a prominent FFer who backed Cowen on his show while Taoiseach, but during ads and when show was over said Biffo had to be got rid. Browne seemed to write it down and showed it to others on the panel. Sean Fleming laughed and said he would not be surprised "what he said".

    Wonder who was it, I suspect Conor Lenihan. If it was a she I would have suspected auntie Mama.

    People might not think it now but Cowen will go down in history as possibly the best Taoiseach after De Velera and Lemass.

    I hope when you're trading bonds, it's more on logic than sentiment for your own sake.

    I'm rolling around the floor laughing. I don't think that now, nor will I ever!

    He wrote the name down and waved it around. Here's a screencap:

    You should change your location from "Party Secret" to "Laughter Lounge".

    Were you ever in Sweden? I suggest Stockholm.
