Michael Brennan: The A to Z of failures that spelled Cowen's downfall
THERE was an A to Z published by a local newspaper to commemorate the famous homecoming by Taoiseach Brian Cowen two-and-a half years ago.
There were the predictable Cowen entries (D is for debating skills, L is for loyalty) and then there was Q for Quit, which was "one of the few words in the English language that Brian Cowen does not understand".
