Cowen shows last act of cowardice

OUR dear Taoiseach, after selling us out to Europe and the IMF to protect his golfing banker buddies, has shown his last act of cowardice by refusing to face the electorate in the forthcoming election.

All we will get to replace him is a man who promised the Irish people 150,000 jobs if we voted Yes in the second Lisbon Treaty referendum.

So, Enda, where are all those jobs now that Lisbon was supposed to deliver?

I urge the Irish people to think very carefully before voting this time, as changing the name from Fianna Fail to Fine Gael won't change a thing.
