Lise Hand: Cyclops Cowen denies that blind eyes are being turned
IT was quiet, too quiet around the corridors of glower in Leinster House yesterday. Instead of the sort of roaring-matches, sneak-attacks and all-out assaults that one would expect an opposition to be enthusiastically launching at a punch-drunk and weakened government, the place was in the grip of deja-vu.
In fact, it was hard to believe it was exactly a year yesterday since the electrifying showdown in the Dail chamber when Eamon Gilmore dramatically called on then-Ceann Comhairle John O'Donoghue to resign over his expenses.
For despite the nation being all of a doodah over the banks, the Dail was the venue for a rerun of the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' yesterday morning, with both Eamon Gilmore and Enda Kenny eager to do the time warp again.
