GAME over. It's time for the 'mission aborted' message to be delivered to Taoiseach Brian Cowen, who has to go.

Senior figures within Fianna Fail need to make him an offer he can't refuse: either stand aside for an agreed successor or prepare for a heave.

It is wrong to allow him to carry on as if his hoarse, flabby 'Morning Ireland' interview is just another cloudburst to be weathered. It cannot be shrugged off.
