Fianna Fáil are drunk on power

1 October 2010

FIRST it was Taoiseach Brian Cowen’s performance on RTÉ radio - was he hoarse or hungover? Then a Fine Gael TD, the worse for wear, threatening a young Garda, using the ‘mind your manners, we’ll be in power soon’ line. The ‘demon drink’ has been front and centre in political debate.
