We are now only weeks away of being told that Lisbon 2 is officially on the way officially and in advance of this storm, Taoiseach Brian Cowen has embarked on a jet-setting tour of Europe.
Yesterday (WED), he jetted off for Luxembourg for a meeting with the Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean Claude Juncker. Then it was off to Berlin for an evening meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Today it was off to London to meet with the man he seems to have a lot in common with, under-fire Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
And tomorrow he will pack his back and head off to Paris for a meeting with the small-but-perfectly-formed French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
It’s as yet unknown whether the fragrant Carla Bruni will be in Paris with her husband for his meeting with Cowen.
Cowen and Sarkozy have met on a number of occasions over the past six months – surely it’s about time he was introduced to the main attraction!!
“Ah, come on, what’s Star backwards?”
