Politics throws up some daft notions at times, particularly lately. But it's hard to think of a sillier one than the suggestion on 'step in-step out' government participation from the Independent Alliance.

The Alliance indicated over the weekend that, if its support was needed to form the next government, it might accept ministerial posts, but not attend cabinet meetings.

Seriously? It would seem so. Apparently, the Alliance is determined "not to be captured" by sharing cabinet responsibility with any of the Dáil parties.
