At Irish Election, Cian probably has the measure of
picturegate Cowengate portraitgate.. Portraits which, according to an Irish Times report, made their appearance almost three weeks ago.. Meanwhile Suzy poses a key question – “I wonder how morale in the newsroom is?” And, as ever, Miriam Lord is majestic in the Irish Times.
How dare some idiot with a paintbrush sully the dignity of the office of An Taoiseach. Who does he think he is Bertie? Does he really think he can get away with such an outrage? Who does he think he is Seanie FitzPatrick? Fingers Fingleton? High on their own indignation, Cowens knicker-twisters imposed an immediate fatwa on the man who painted a rude little picture of their boss. In the interests of the bigger picture. Hanging is too good for them. Instead, expect the images to appear on a T-shirt near you before the weekend is out. So thats another job well done by Brians backroom boys.
