Outmoded Cowen is inept and should go
IT is worth recalling that Brian Cowen gave an interview to Aine Lawlor on 'Morning Ireland' on September 15 2009 having just emerged from a Fianna Fail parliamentary meeting in Athlone.
He conducted the interview in a quite dreadful fumbling manner. His performance was almost as inept as the one he gave to Cathal Mac Coille on Tuesday that has gained worldwide notoriety.
The problem is far deeper for Mr Cowen than a man giving a singularly below-par, one-off performance on radio. His communication skills and whole approach to public engagement are outmoded.
