It's the same old tune on the B-side

It was just like the old days yesterday with one B Cowen versus Gilmore again in the Dail.

But Fianna Fail TD Barry Cowen was singing from the same hymn sheet as his brother's old foe -- Eamon Gilmore -- on the fiscal treaty.

However, after backing the Government's stance on all matters European, he couldn't help himself later on when the Tanaiste criticised comments by Sinn Fein.

"Are they treasonous?" asked Barry.

That controversial accusation of economic treason by the Labour leader still rankles in the Cowen clan.
