Brian Lenihan: Multi-Award Winning Finance Minister December 7, 2010

Posted by Garibaldy in Fianna Fáil, Green Party, Irish Politics.

So the budget is later today. I was going to put up an open thread on it, but I suspect that there may be a much more sophisticated post in the offing from someone else who writes here. I quite liked my putative Budget Day: Open Thread for Open Class Warfare headline too, but there you go. I’m sure I’ll have the chance to use it again. On a day that is likely to live in infamy, we can at least console ourselves with the thought that the Financial Times at least seems to have learned something from this crisis and the Fianna Fáil/Green government’s reaction to it over the last few years, and sees Brian Lenihan for what he is. It will probably be the only thing likely to raise a smile associated with Lenihan today.

The second year in a row, indeed. I guess that the timid mice in the Green Jersey Press Corps failed to let us know about it the last time around.

There is, by the way, something fitting about the last parting shot of the FF permagovernment being facilitated by tarmac and concrete for Kerry and a grubby supercasino for North Tipperary, with FG only play-acting at opposing it for the benefit of the voters (see Creighton, Lucinda).
