Talent and FG

• I have often wondered at the sheer waste of real talent, left to sit on the backbenches of Fine Gael, when it could be making a real contribution.

Take someone of Peter Mathews's calibre for instance, and others who are equally talented with excellent qualifications, who would be more suitable for a ministerial post.

When we have ministers in government in a time of absolute crisis who are 'crass' and who embarrass us in Europe, grovelling and behaving in such a servile way, it's sickening to watch.
