A blockheaded publicity stunt
THE Government's lack of sense when engaging with the public is simply astonishing.
What precisely do all those highly paid "advisers" do? Our gaffe-prone Taoiseach has three of them. Last week, ministers rolled up to their Farmleigh House meeting in smug style, each in his own chauffeur-driven Mercedes, to discuss ways in which "everyone will have to share the pain".
They seemed surprised that ordinary citizens might find such a spectacle inappropriate, not to say revolting.
