Cowen is ringmaster of 'political circus'

THE Taoiseach doesn't want a "political circus" to accompany any inquiry into the collapse of the banking industry, which almost wrecked the Irish economy.

Brian Cowen isn't a doctor arriving at the scene of an accident; he is the driver that ran over innocent bystanders.
