Heard the one about the opposition?

LAUGHING boy Brian Cowen was laughing at more than Fine Gael in the Dail chamber on Wednesday: he and his party were also laughing at the people of Ireland.

On the day that it was formally acknowledged that the old, the sick and the disabled of Ireland would have to pay a heavy price to support the gambling debts of the friends of Fianna Fail, through paying off the Anglo debt of €22bn, all Cowen could do was sneer at the problems of the opposition.

It is amazing to me that when the Fianna Fail mask slips, all that is revealed is exactly the same face of arrogance and cocky contempt.
