Silly season spooks a foolish FF stampede
Last weekend saw the start of the political silly season. Spooked by a few carefully targeted media questions, gullible Fianna Fail and Labour politicians began a charge towards the cliffs.
Alex White of Labour, feeling the cold wind in his constituency, called for a pre-election pact with Fine Gael.
Such a pact would be bad for both parties. Apart from blurring their separate identities, each party would get the blame for the bad stuff done by the other in government.
