Fianna Fáil is a political scorpion that is eventually going to lash out and put this Government out of its misery.
To date, Fianna Fáil has successfully managed to maintain the illusion that it is not intimately involved in the business of this Government, with responsibility and culpability for decisions that are made and - perhaps more importantly - those that are not.
Speaking in the Dáil last week, PBP-AAA TD Bríd Smith listed all of the controversial issues that have so far been kicked to touch by the Government: water charges, bin charges, education reform, repeal of the Eighth Amendment, a possible investigation into a Nama deal, and zero-hours contracts.
