    The classic Irish "hold me back" fight that never happened at all as relayed by countless BSers and narcissists over the years.

    I would warrant they agreed up from to split the Tanauste job and Eamo is now inventing fantasies

    "Why the present Government should be re-elected"

    Eamon and Joan were both at a birthday party on Friday. The book was not mentioned.

    Joan looks on the bright side. Pats herself on the back



    "But as is clear in this book, Eamon, Joan, the Labour Party and the whole of Government worked together extremely hard and extremely effectively to turn the country around."

    Gilmore pretending the government almost collapsed




    The book discloses how Gilmore mentally drafted pulling Labour out of government at the time of Martin Callinan’s resignation as Garda Commissioner, but he said this evening that there were two other occasions when it was close to falling.
