Fine Gael could prove to be Labour's biggest foe

Just when we think every stitch has been filched from the Labour wardrobe, we learn of yet another case of Fine Gael engagement in political clothes plunder. It seems a most unlikely scenario, but Fine Gael - for so long the voice of "business and the ratepayer" - has now morphed into the workers' pal.
Fine Gael is also emerging as a modernising force forging great social change. It turns out they are the people who gave us legislation for the X Case and they are planning a major national dialogue on the abortion clause in the Constitution.
And, you may not have realised this, but they also gave us same-sex marriage - and now they are working on other things such as cutting the bankruptcy term to one year.
