JUST when the election was warming up, with the heated debate between Eamon Gilmore and Micheal Martin, along comes a dose of cold water in the shape of the first "report card" from the International Monetary Fund.

There was nothing much to get excited about in the report itself. That is hardly surprising since it is the first in the four-year agreement with the EU and IMF on fixing the public finances and the banks.

There will be many more such reports, since they come every three months.
