FG 'revolution' is just a lot of hot air

I AM truly amazed at the sight of Enda Kenny's so-called ‘new' cabinet. Prior to, during and after the election, the public were subjected to various forms of hyperbole describing the election outcome as a "revolution", a "new dawn" and a "new way of doing politics". The ubiquitous buzz words were "change" and "hope".

So what did Enda Kenny give the people of Ireland? Change? New politics?

No, Enda decided to give us the same old tired faces that we have had before. Ten out of the 15 ‘new' ministers have all served either as senior or junior ministers in the last Fine Gael- Labour Government in the 1990s.
