Time to end this farce

From tragedy to farce -- and all within just 48 hours. Ireland has been let down grievously by its politicians over the last three years, but never has the electorate been more ill served by its political masters than it was over the weekend.
What the public want, more than anything else, from the political establishment is clarity, certainty and decisiveness.
None of these qualities were in evidence either Saturday or yesterday as a trail of politicians engaged in cheap point scoring and needless blame-game politics. This was a great pity because the weekend began with an event that suggested clarity and stability had finally arrived.
