Wasn't it fun? All those weeks of playacting, with Fine Gael making nasty remarks about Alan Kelly, the Minister for Prolonging the Housing Crisis.

How we laughed when an anonymous Fine Gael cabinet minister told the Sunday Independent, of Kelly: "It's not that he cares about the homeless crisis but he wants to be the person who fixes it."

Biting, hurtful and nasty. And perhaps true. After all, Fine Gael know him better than we do.
