Have you no shame after what you have done to this country, Gilmore tells Cowen

Posted on November 30, 2010 at 07:42 PM

Eamon Gilmore TD, Leader of the Labour Party told the Taoiseach he had no shame when questioning Cowen about the EU/IMF bailout during Leaders' Questions this afternoon.

"You have no shame after what you have done to this country to stand up here on the day you come back with a lousy deal like that," Eamon told the House. He added the Government did not have the "credibility or the authority or ability to negotiate a decent honourable deal".

He said that deal was a "sell-out of the country" and demanded the deal be ratified by the House.

"I have one question for the Taoiseach. Will he put the agreement to this House for its approval or rejection?

You can see Eamon's contribution in the accompanying video while the full transcript of the proceedings are available on the Oireachtas website. Do let us know what you think in the comments section below.
