FF backbencher Ned O'Keeffe has just said on RTE DriveTime that Brian Lenihan should "Pack his bags and move on to next business." For the sake of the country we must hope that for once people listen to him.

We couldn't have made a worse choice to manage our finances during the recession than a gravely ill man with appalling judgement and no record of competence.

Despite what Fergal Keane said, it's impossible to take anything FF backbenchers say about their ministers seriously. The ship is holed, listing 45 degrees and the rats are making their way to the rails to start the swim. If they'd been listening to public opinion for the past two years Cowen would be on the backbenches and we'd have had a chance to vote for whoever we wanted to steer the country through this crisis.

As for O'Keeffe . . . the pig farmer can keep his slurry in his closed gob.

He also said the Brits can get lost because we fought an economic war with them.

Then he went on a tirade against Patrick Honohan. Ned was always suspicious of putting an academic in there, apparently.

Weird chap.

"Babe" O Keeffe called Matthew Elderfield a foreigner who came here to tell us what to do. Wonder what he will tell the dozen IMF/ECB/EU officials we have here today-That another Corkman, Collins with his 12 Apostles took care of others here who came to undermine us during war of Independence ?

He went on to heap praise on Cowen.

He is an FF man until he dies, just looking out for his parties face, nothing else.

Reminds me of a certain Mr.Power today saying he is pretty much disgusted at how the government has treated the Irish people in the last few weeks,and yes folks Mr.Power has done the right thing himself as he has resigned/gone independent not taken the party whip,oh wait a minute..................................

Neddy must be gettin some abuse from the grassroots -

flailing in out in all directions with a touch of xenophobia thrown is probably what the local cumann wants to hear

surely ned is aiding and abetting a suspected felon by telling Lenihan to flee?
No?

The tar barrells are being readied in Rathcormac as we type.
Ned is afraid there won't be a seat to pass on to the youngfella so he has to say something in the hope that he'll fool the people.

there was nothing lenihan ,could do the rot had set in years before ,granted he was part of the set up.The man that should be held to account in front of the people is slithering away and hiding that man is The Bert.He was in charge ,he was the cheer leader ,he is the creator of this mess and fooking gets away with it.
Even if FG/Lab were in power the shyte was coming down the line ,there was so much damage done years before that no government could stop it.This was always going to happen.

O'Keefe of all people! A lying, condescending SOB of the first water.

Methinks there is a scuttling sound on the ratlines, cap'n.

The messenger is poor but the message is sound. Lenihan has just been on RTE Six One full of bluster, denial, aggression and arrogance. He refuses to take responsibility for his shameful failures.

Ned is a loolah! Yes he is right but he should pack his bags too. This from the bloke who tried to ban the movie "Babe" coz he thought no one would eat Pork. He's a FF Mé Féiner of the worst order!

i think youre wrong,lenihan has done nothing right for the last 2 years,in his first budget he raised vat,which sent more people up north.he had to row back on that.then he saved his mates in anglo,a receiver and the fraud squad should have gone in instead.he has been lying to the irish people ever since.the man is a traitor.
