John Drennan: Fiscal terrorists call shots in 'Appeasement Process'
We are learning the hard way that he who carries the biggest stick rules, writes John Drennan
The patented Michael Noonan song and dance show might have been in full flow over the last fortnight but none of Noonan's linguistic dexterity could disguise the fact that he, Enda Kenny and the formerly bellicose Eamon Gilmore are presiding over the second great surrender to our EU 'partners' and the bondholders of Europe.
In fairness, it is hard to declare war on your enemies when the previous administration has signed an unconditional surrender and the country is already occupied by our EU/IMF 'partners'.
But, while the Opposition's queries of "are you FF in disguise?" may have been utterly opportunistic, their analysis of the flight of our bright new Government from its plans to renegotiate our bailout was cruelly accurate.
