Brian Cowen is a pathetic little bollix.
There are times though when I almost have a grudging respect for him.
Yesterday, he issued an ultimatum to Israel. Release the Irish hostages or there will be ‘serious consequences’.
I don’t know if Biffo is aware of the fact, but Israel is a nuclear power. They have an extremely efficient and well trained army, navy and air force. Ireland, on the other hand has a Sopwith Camel, a navy that is currently visiting Argentina and an army that equipped with World War I surplus. I would love to know what those ‘serious consequences’ are. Is he secretly planning to drop a five megaton Mary Harney on them? Is he secretly planning an invasion of Israel by Willie O’Dea?
Of course, Israel should be worried. Biffo has proven himself quite capable of destroying a country single-handed.
Biffo is losing the run of himself altogether today. He is warning [not asking – warning] the Israelis to leave the Irish convoy ship alone.
If they don’t comply, he’ll launch an intercontinental NAMA at them.
