Fionnan Sheahan: Euro crisis is too critical for political point-scoring

Brian Cowen was pretty slow to read the Lisbon Treaty, but he's quick off the mark to put the boot into the parties who helped him get the referendum passed.
Eight months after a concerted effort by the main political parties and non-political groups, the Taoiseach expressed his gratitude to Fine Gael by questioning their integrity on EU matters and describing them as a "so-called pro-European Union party".
Cowen was very glad of Fine Gael's "so-called" pro-Europeanism last September.
