Sir -- Typical Fianna Fail: rearrange a few spots and think the Irish people will be fooled into believing that it is now a completely different animal. Fianna Fail under Micheal Martin is not a different animal. It is the same animal that brought this country to economic ruin.
Thanks to FF's failed policies and gross incompetence, this country is once more a target for the British gutter press. Recently, a headline in the Daily Sport read: 'Wanted, one idiot to run country of 4,500,000 superstitious drunkards.'
One wonders if Brian Cowen's performance on Morning Ireland last autumn had anything to do with the resurrection of the stereotype of the thick, drunken Paddy.
