Labour to blame as new lot look as bad as the old
We voted for Labour to lead the Opposition, not for the party to be in Government, writes Jody Corcoran
The new Government is showing worrying signs of being as dysfunctional as the old -- and it seems Labour is the problem. Do not say you were not warned.
In fact, the Sunday Independent was roundly booed for having so warned. We said that a Government of Fine Gael and Labour would give rise to a state of paralysis, and so it is turning out.
The question was always going to be which Labour would show up: Labour of the Eighties or Labour of the Nineties. This weekend you may want to consider turning back your clock 25 years.
