Meet the new boss -- same as the old boss

AS a Labour supporter, I find it extraordinary to listen to the party's ministers stating as justification for cutbacks and additional charges that the "damage was done before we came into Government" and that they therefore have no choice but to implement these policies.
I thought the election six months ago was to allow the electorate to pass its judgment on the last government and its policies.
The electorate said no to Fianna Fail and the Greens -- so why are we now being told by the new Government that ministers have no choice other than to implement the decisions of Fianna Fail and the Greens?
