In brief: Poverty . . . Marbles . . . Abortion . . . Double-speak
Fine Gael's claim that it can cut €3bn from the public sector budget without affecting frontline services is every bit as plausible as Leo Varadkar's claim that ill-health, as opposed to inequity, is the significant cause of poverty in our society.
