Ahern totally disagrees with Blair on EU budget

RTE News:

The Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, has said he totally disagrees with the position of the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, on the EU Budget, which led to stalemate at last week's European summit.

The Fine Gael leader, Enda Kenny, claimed in the Dáil that the attack on the Common Agricultural Policy by Mr Blair was 'absolutely outrageous'.

Mr Ahern said that he agreed with him, saying he totally disagreed with Mr Blair on the issue, and said he believes the British presentation of the CAP was 'dishonest'.

Wow! The leaders of both Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael criticising a British prime minister. That is definitely something that you don't see happening every day!
