Would we be better off if McCreevy had remained as MOF instead of Biffo?

Much to criticise McCreevy for, certainly, but he did understand that the crazy increases in public spending that Bertie wanted could not be continued. Hence he was shifted off to Europe and Bertie went dancing in the sand at Indochoney.

Of course, the media and the Liveline brigade had a collective hernia post 2002 when McCreevy attempted to rein in spending somewhat. And Cowen's first budget was warmly praised by, inter alia, the Irish Times. You reap what you sow
