Cowen to kick out FF treaty 'rebels'

TAOISEACH Brian Cowen yesterday threatened to expel any Fianna Fail TD who breaks ranks over the Lisbon Treaty.
Mr Cowen warned that he will not tolerate any dissent from within his own ranks as he began his first real working day as Taoiseach.
He threatened to remove the party whip from any minister, TD or senator who voiced support for the No campaign as the Government officially confirmed the referendum will be held on June 12.
Mr Cowen said his party had no intention of standing back and letting No campaigners "distort the treaty or demonise a union which is so important to the success of modern Ireland".
