The Taoiseach and Tanaiste are being acclaimed on all sides for winning the battle of Brexit, so my criticism of how they conducted the campaign won't bother them.

They are boosted by a poll that implies we are not that bothered by what happened to Maurice McCabe, but that we like Fine Gael beating up on Brits and unionists.

Me, I don't think the Taoiseach should be rewarded for standing by Frances Fitzgerald and feeding our tribal instincts instead of reminding our people that Arlene Foster was acting rationally in looking after her increasingly isolated people.
