What Do You Mean You ‘Weren’t Invited’?



This evening.

The launch of ‘In Calm and Crisis’  a book of essays on the late Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan Jnr, who negotiated the bank guarantee and died as the current government took power, in the National Library, Merrion Street, Dublin this evening.

From top: The buke; Bertie Ahern, Conor Lenihan; Michael McDowell and Michael Martin; Mary O’Rourke with Ann Lenihan, Brian Lenihan’s mother (sitting centre).

They love a martyr in fairness.

Dynasties be dynastyiing.

        True – he looks like he spent the previous night drinking Carlsburg Special Brew, and then passed out too close to the electric heater.

    Irish water should be questioned as to why this effluent has backwashed out into the public area again.

      Yes, you can. He was a cretin and the rehabilitation of his legacy and that of all those assembled thieves, liars and sneaks pictured there is going on in a rather bewildering way.

      The usual inept suspects come out to rewrite history on Europe’s worst finance minister three years in a row….

    Last night 6 years ago the bank guarantee made private debt public and crippled the Irish economy. It seems cancer took his life but saved his reputation. If he was alive today he would be as vilified as Ahern and Cowen

      Dead or alive, I couldn’t care less. Useless, weak, uninformed, out of his dept, parish pump politician who nailed many of us to a cross for the rest of our days in this country run by school teachers, solicitors and publicans. I despise him for what he commited us to. I despise him even more for doing it without informing us what he was doing. Infact he actually tried to cover up his fallacy. If he was still alive I’d probably be wishing him dead so I’m not going to be a hypocrite now. Good luck, good riddance, thanks a bunch for landing me with some of the highest taxes in the world and the greatest public debt while at the same time looking after your buddies everywhere. P***k. Hope the worms bite hard.

    On a completely unrelated note, the collective noun for a group of weasels is called a sneak.

    If they were written by his brother Conor then they’ll read like the musings of a five year old on their first school tour. That said we must be some bloody eejits, that this lot were in charge for so long and we replaced them with the current lot. Mugs all of us.

    Ahh look right there is a case study on political corruption and nepotism. I love how this is a celebration of the man who has left us burdened with the depths of gamblers that will see our children’s generation still paying back.
