Brian Cowen, Dev and the Lisbon Treaty

This cartoon was published in Magill for an article which asked what former Fianna Fáil Taoiseach Eamon de Valera would have thought of the Lisbon Treaty. Here, the current Taoiseach Brian Cowen claims de Valera would have been “Pro-Treaty” and then fumbles over the fact that the phrase “Pro-Treaty” could be confused with labels used in the Irish Civil War 1922-23 after the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, where de Valera was in fact “Anti-Treaty”.
