Acting Taoiseach “A Laughing Stock” – EU Insiders

The acting Taoiseach with Prime Minister Zapatero of Spain

Its the picture nobody in Fianna Fail wanted you to see – acting Taoiseach Brian Cowen is greeted at an EU Leaders’ summit by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, the prime minister of Spain, which holds the current EU presidency – however the reverse shot (inset) shows just how little credibility Mr Cowen retains among his peers in the EU – even those who with Ireland are members of the fiscally disgraced ‘PIIGS’ grouping.

There have so far been no reports of the acting Taoiseach actually being kicked by another Prime Minister yet, but in a sideline meeting of EU Finance Ministers there was much mirth as Brian Lenihan was cajoled by the others who kept asking him if he was good for a loan.
