Hanafin for Taoiseach?

Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport Mary Hanafin was quizzed on The Week in Politics last night on the Richie Boucher scandal.

While mouthing the usual dishonest waffle that other Fianna Fail TDs have been spewing out in the last couple of days she also spoke a lot about providing political leadership.

As I’ve written before this politician is the most ruthlessly ambitious and dangerous politicians in the country. It seems she is prepared to do anything to further her career and judging from last night’s performance the bumbling fool Cowen would be advised to get a metal plate fitted on his back.
