ABSTRACT
FORMER taoiseach Brian Cowen is launching a career as a management consultant. While many will scoff at the notion of him selling his advice, one recent news story recalled evidence of his good counsel. It was revealed that former PLO chief Yasser Arafat had abnormally high levels of radioactive polonium when he died. By coincidence, Mr Cowen was visiting Arafat as news of the 9/11 terror attacks broke. With the US looking for enemies, he advised Arafat to give blood: simple but astute advice.
