FG minister under fire but Labour is hit
The junior coalition partner suffered the most as the Opposition took aim over the GSOC debacle, writes John Drennan
A WEEK, at the best of times, can be a long time in politics – but for the current Coalition the evolution of the obscure GSOC 'bother' into the first visceral domestic crisis to strike at the heart of this administration must have felt like a month.
The Opposition, in contrast, was buoyant at the rare delight, after almost three years of confused impotence, of securing a hit a very palpable [political] hit'.
In fact, such an analysis probably understates the extent of the damage – for more hits were inflicted on the Coalition than you would see in The Godfather.
