  1. Envoy agrees with Biffo nickname

    IRELAND: Documents given by WikiLeaks to the Belfast Telegraph caused a stir today after embarrassing comments by the US ambassador were revealed.

    A secret message sent by ambassador Thomas Foley to then secretary of state Condoleeza Rice detailed former taoiseach Brian Cowen’s fondness for “pubs and singing.”

    It also revealed that his nickname Biffo meant “big ignorant fucker from Offaly,” a tag that the ambassador said suited him “especially well.”
