Burton lets FF off the hook

Joan Burton has lost her "toxic triangle" during the campaign.

A favourite line of the Labour Party minister has been blaming the "toxic triangle" of the bankers, developers and Fianna Fail politicians who caused the economic crash.

However, on the 'Today with Pat Kenny' show yesterday, she was listing out the bankers and the developers -- but then suddenly paused before she named the last guilty party... "And people from the construction industry," she said.

As her party's director of elections for the referendum, she knows that she has to keep Fianna Fail and its voters on side in the Yes campaign.
