Eugene Regan: says Brian Cowen must 'show leadership'

TAOISEACH Brian Cowen was accused yesterday of epitomising Fianna Fail's inconsistency on embattled Senator Ivor Callely's failure to resign.

Some figures in the party are saying their former colleague needs to resign right away, while others say he should be given until the Seanad committee finishes its inquiries.

Fianna Fail's own internal inquiry found his conduct was unbecoming and moved to expel him from the party -- but Mr Callely resigned before that move. Mr Cowen has indicated he feels Mr Callely needs to consider his position, but insists he cannot force him to resign.
