At a stroke, our Government looks more like old Fianna Fail
Events of the past week have told us definitively that we did not have "a democratic revolution" at the last general election on February 25, 2011. We just swapped a government led by 'Tweedledum' for one led by 'Tweedledee'.
Yes, we gave an historic kicking to Tweedledum and we heartily endorsed Tweedledee on a scale never seen since democracy came to these shores.
But that does not a revolution make. What follows is not an encouraging story - but it is well to face up to its implications and see what we do next.
