Right so. Starting now?

He expressed concern about the direction being taken by the EU. While the euro had “conceptual merits”, the decision to join what he described as a “badly designed and poorly constructed” monetary union had cost Ireland dearly.

How about now?

Mr Ó Cuív claimed larger member states had moved into a position where they could dictate policy, “and that a nation’s influence in the European Union is now in direct proportion to the size of its economy”.

Oh forget it.

FORMER FIANNA Fáil deputy leader Éamon O Cuív has accused the party leadership of attempting to force him out of the party.

An infuriated Mr O Cuív told The Irish Times last night that a letter he received from Fianna Fáil whip, Seán Ó Fearghail had left him with a stark choice.

The Galway West TD and former government minister said he had a “monumental decision” to make by today about whether to remain in the party.

No Treaty. The grandfather would be proud.
