Listening back on this recording http://thepressnet.com/2010/09/14/8864/
I noticed again the attempt by Cowen to label the moderator a “defeatist” It occurred to me that Cowen and lenihan are increasingly using words one would have heard in the last days of the Bunker in Berlin May 1945 So we are now labelled “Defeatist” those of us that want to call a spade a spade, reality is reality and no bully boy tactics by Cowen or lenihan will change the fact the economy is on its knees and this is a result of the mismanagement of Cowen and Lenihan Here is a extract of an article I picked up yesterday in the Irish Times by Fintan O Tool, here he has spotted the language Brian Lenihan is using and again only listening again to my recording of the radio interview with Cowen does it become more apparent these two guys have totally lost the plot and must be removed as a matter of urgency for the country’s sake!
Unable to admit putting his country in this hideous mess, Brian Lenihan has turned further and further away from reality, writes FINTAN O’TOOLE WHEN SOMEONE says a thing once, it may be a slip of the tongue. When they repeat it, it is an indication of the way their mind is working. Thus it is with a phrase that Brian Lenihan used twice last Thursday, when he was explaining why “the cheapest bank bailout in the world” has turned into a €50 billion nightmare. The glimpse it gives of what is going on at the back of his mind is truly terrifying. Early in the day, on Morning Ireland , Lenihan remarked of his plan to pump another €3.7 billion into Allied Irish Banks (bringing the total so far to €7.2 billion) that it would help restore AIB to “its former greatness”. The phrase was so breathtakingly brainless that I assumed it was just one of those cliches that sometimes invades the mind when it is on rhetorical auto-pilot. But, no. Later, on Prime Time , Lenihan announced that the entire banking system would be restored to “the greatness it once had”. Oh dear God – he really means “greatness”. Do we really have to ask what constituted the “former greatness” of AIB? Was it the collusion with a massive tax fraud on the State in the 1980s and 1990s? Was it the overcharging of customers to the tune of €66 million? Read more at source http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/opinion/2010/1005/1224280400401.html
