He did that during a parliamentary session recently! Cowen, who took over as prime minister on May 7, ended a question time session with opposition deputies on Wednesday when a microphone in the Dail lower chamber picked up a conversation with Deputy Prime Minister Mary Coughlan. "Ring those people, get a handle on them ... We've seen all those f*ckers," Cowen was heard saying, although it was not clear who he was referring to. Cowen, known for a sometimes gruff public persona, a robust debating style and a sharp intellect, apologised for the remark, saying he had become frustrated by repeated interruptions when he was trying to reply to a question. Not a very good start eh? What do you think? Read more:;_ylt=AtHMHkD5PQzZ1XKCv38e6TDtiBIF
