Was it just 7 days ago that we were debating the likelihood of the IMF arriving which was being virulently being denied?
Who came out of the week with their reputations enhanced and who with it tarnished.
Here are some ideas:
Tarnished
Brian Cowen
Brian Lenihan
Dermot Aherne
RTE
The Greens

Enhanced
BBC, Bloomberg et al
Patrick Honohan (for speaking out)
Pat Rabitte (for getting righteously angry)

Pat RAbbites anger was fake! Like everything about Labour
I'm not a labour supporter but it looked fairly genuine to me. If not he's a good actor.
Was Labour's reputation enhanced do you think?
You'll notice I didn't mention FG, They were a bit Awol for the week. Didn't make an impact. Pat Rabitte did, the clip was played the next day on the radio.

Take a look at the thread on it - 17000 views! One way or another he made an impact.
Any thread on FG's performance - none at all.
