Let's give new Government a chance - it won't be easy for them
At last we have a government - though personally I did not have any problem with the delay, if we needed the time to get to the solution we have now reached. I wish this Government every success over the next five (or even three) years. Let us all be patient and understanding as they go about their duties. I would ask the following people in particular to fulfil the following functions.
Alan Kelly: Much as you want to be the future leader of the Labour Party, don't destroy the good work of the last government just to score points now. That's not leadership in my opinion.
Shane Ross: After 35 years, you have a Cabinet seat, so now you have got to put into practice what you have lectured us over the years through TV, radio and newspapers. It will not be as easy as it seemed.
