Bruce Arnold: Master of contempt Cowen leaves chaos in his wake


BRIAN Cowen is a master of contempt. In the last 24 hours he has completed the circle of that contempt to include the whole compass of political life in this country, leaving behind him a trail of chaos and constitutional debris.

His form of contempt is blunt, gross and brutal. He claims, quite wrongly, that he and his party are on the right track and will implement recovery and progress. Not under him will they do this. They are too contemptuous of the way it should be done.
