Lenihan's confessions may just strengthen FG's hand

A FRIEND said to me over supper, one night this week that Brian Lenihan was showing true patriotism in his ongoing confession of what really happened over the bailout.

My own thoughts on this were eccentric enough. I thought of John Gower, the English poet and author of Confessio Amantis, a 33,000-word poem about life and love written at the time of Chaucer.

Mr Lenihan, who has a certain measure of literary understanding, will know what I mean.
