Well, he’s no Charlie McCreevy…

The Minister of Finance in the Republic, Brian Cowen likes a drink and is incurably social… Damien has the pictures…

    Wow, is that the Rocky Horror Picture show?

  • susan

    Some of the commenters are Damien’s site are far too harsh on the young people in the photos. If you do not have at least a shoebox full of snaps like those from your political youth, then my consolations, you did not have a political youth. Better luck next lifetime.

    that thought also occured to me too susan… Still Cowan will not be too happy with his particular exposure on this…

  • susan

    Mick, I predict “Offaly Reverberating With Shock. Not.” I hear Cowan’s quite the singer, too.

    Geez before viewing that, I’d almost forgotten that in terms of nice women, Ireland is pretty low in the International stakes. Think I’ll stick to Latvia and Sweden…

    Those of us who appreciate a wee Irish girlie will be happier if you do. More for us

  • susan

    Au contraire, steve. “¿Quién Es Less Macho?” will be the cry around the hillsides tonight. “Ireland’s Heartache to be Latvia’s Joy.” Slán leat, Valenciano. Vaya con dios.

    Politics – still Showbiz for Ugly People!!

    I generally detest snide little side snipes at people based on their appearance, weight, fender size etc., but Keith Gaughan’s link on Cowan is yabba-dabba-dorable:

    Fair play – its young politicos having fun – no doubt the usual round of careerist and purist bland policy wonks will hate the idea. Having fun does not come easy. I was going to go off drink for lent but then thought – I am not a quitter!
