Cowen’s Family Values

May 11th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Irish Politics

King Brian (or was that Che Cowen on the t-shirts in the crowd?) has been paraded through Offaly. And family values are back in Irish politics. Cowen’s family values that is. The comment of one punter on tonight’s RTE news piece approving of ‘the family man’ and the values that he hopefully brings with him sent a few shivers down my neck, the 1980’s shivers – some of you might remember them.

Any thoughts on what our new Taoiseach’s family values might entail – and his words in Offaly on young people and their ‘ character builidng’? Or was that subliminal references to possible GAA coffer building?
