John Drennan: Broke and bitter public not swayed by 'triumph'
Those who vote for the centre are dangerously disillusioned.
THE Coalition is trapped in a dangerous cycle where 'triumphs' in Europe are being constantly diluted by domestic travails.
In truth, when it comes to our acquiescence to the holding of an ongoing Sword of Damocles of prom note and bailout debt over the heads of the country, 'triumph' might be too strong a term.
However, Michael Noonan's renegotiation of our bailout debt was followed last week by much patting of the minister's head by Christine Lagarde and the usual Irish Times suspects.
