Straight-talking Irish politician?

Is the following straight-talking quote from the mouth of an Irish politician or a politician from an accountable, democratic state?

One million for the correct answer.

I take this action today because it’s my job. I am responsible for what happened. I am sad to report to the people that we fell short; we fell short of the expectations that we’ve created over the last four years for the type of excellence in government that they should expect.

  1. If it’s an Irish politician it must be from decades ago when Irish politicians occasionally stood by their principles (and not just prior to an election).
    However, I’ll take a punt on a British politician.
    Wild guess: Was it connected to the political expenses scandal in Britain in 2009?
