Little negotiating in lousy bailout

I SEE that Micheal Martin has taken to accusing political opponents of wanting to "unilaterally renegotiate" the IMF/EU bailout.
"Unilateral negotiation" is a crass contradiction in terms. I have not seen or heard the expression used by anyone but Mr Martin himself and it does not figure, unsurprisingly enough, among the policies of any party.
But we may be on to something here.
