No point in Labour trying to pretend water charges are new
LABOUR are in trouble facing into these mid-term elections – but joke-shop political tactics will not help them.
Their behaviour yesterday in discussions about water charges has left them looking weak and toothless where they set out to try to look assertive. They may not like their Fine Gael partners' tactics on this one.
But anyway you look at things, Fine Gael's move to give out a ballpark figure on water charges was the only way to go.
