Fianna Fáil TD for Carlow-Kilkenny John McGuinness today accused Brian Cowen of weak leadership and called on him to consider his position as leader of Fianna Fáil and as Taoiseach.
In an interview broadcast on KCLR96FM this morning, Mr McGuinness said this week’s Cabinet reshuffle showed “a lack of vision, strategy and imagination.”
He also claimed he Taoiseach had “put the party and tribalism first and the country second, with his reshuffle.
“There wasn’t enough emphasis on the economics of the situation, the need for a powerhouse within Government to formulate policy and move things forward with a direct focus on those who are unemployed,” said Mr McGuinness.
“There isn’t an obvious plan for people…we haven’t reached out to those people that need the leadership in terms of their unemployment status or their business strategy to say, and by the way, this is what we are going to do next to support you and to get you out of your difficulties,” he added.
Here we see the Fianna Fail machine is now beginning to fall apart
The obvious self preservation of the party leadership being the main emphases in the latest Cabinet reshuffle.
Things are bad, when their own party members start attacking their own leadership.
With the establishment of NAMA with the support of the above Mr. John Mc Guinness
This government lost all claim to be of the people and for the people.
They sold us out the international bond holder’s .In America the large banks have realized the reality of the situation on the ground and have started a new incentive to keep people in their homes even to the extent that they write down 35%-50% of the lone on these people’s homes
To-day we here that Anglo Irish Bank is now looking for another 10,000,000,000:00 that’s 10 Billion Euros
So far we have given them 5 billion and the other banks have gotten approx 7,500,000,000 and will be expecting to get another 9,000,000,000:00
With all this money it would be cheaper for the government to pay off every house mortgage in the country and let the banks and international bond holders go and developers and commercial investors go and whistle and negotiate their own way out instead of making the taxpayers of this country pay for them.
