Throw out the bathwater but save the Green coalition baby

ONE untoward consequence of the vote on June 5 looks likely to be the decimation of the Green Party, purely as a result of contamination contracted from their larger partners.

I recognise, of course, that there is something about the Greens that tends to bring out the worst in a wide swathe of the Irish nation, and correspondingly, of the Irish media. There is a composite image in the public mind of bearded, vegetarian, bicycling, tree-hugging moaners, shaking reproachful fingers at the fun-loving Celtic Tiger generation.
