Sadly, figures have caught up with the latest Fianna Fail conman and the cool clean hero that was Brian Lenihan is now lying in the gutter with the rest of his party cronies.
Over two years he displayed an aura of I "know what I'm talking about and trust me" and foolishly we did. Only those who pointed to his lack of a financial background doubted his ability to provide leadership and in time their judgements have been vindicated.
I wish the man no evil and I hope he recovers from his illness, I laud his ability and courage to stand up and face the music when others wouldn't, but I now urge him to get his naive face off the bloody stage. The World Bank and / or the IMF are on their way.
