Newsflash: Fianna Fail Parliamentary Party Meeting Delayed
A meeting of the Fianna Fail parliamentary party at which it is thought there may be an attempt to oust Brian Cowen as acting leader of Fianna Fail has been put back to later this afternoon. This is believed to be partly due to technical difficulties of getting the entire party up itself at short notice, and partly to give Fianna Fail TD’s time to spell their own names on a page ripped out of Micheál martin’s Good Copybook.
Martin meanwhile is said to be convinced that he can get 18 signatures from FF TDs. “This is a result of a recent literacy campaign among backbenchers and a new pen I got for Christmas”, he explained.
