Brian Lenihan is dead

The former Minister for Finance died today. He’d been fighting pancreatic cancer since late 2009, and refused to step down even though he was trying to fix the country’s finances.

A lot of people wouldn’t agree with his decisions, especially the bank guarantee, but a lot of people actually liked him. Quite a few of the comments in that article said he was quite courageous, putting the country before his own health, which I have to agree with.

Still not sure if I agree or disagree with his policies, but I can’t say I hated him or had any contempt for him – unlike BIFFO.
