It turns out that the Taoiseach Brian Cowen wasn’t happy with the way he was interviewed on Friday night by the new Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy. The Taoiseach was bombarded with question after question almost like a scene from a movie … you want the truth, you can’t handle the truth. I thought that the questioning was fair in light of the performance of the government, but Ryan Tubridy has said that the questions were fair, based on where we were in the countrys history.
RTE officials were not happy with the line of questioning on the Late Late, and the government likewise, but in a press poll, based on his Late Late interview; 41 per cent of people said the Taoiseach had gone up in their view, just 17 per cent said he had gone down, and 42 per cent said their view of Mr Cowen was not changed.
The Video of the Late Late Show interview is shown below.
Today is now going to make things even tougher, with the publication of the commission on taxation, which might see property tax, the dole being taxed and water rates being reintroduced.
It will be an interesting next 100 days !
