Too busy posturing with their principles, the even more junior c oalition party missed the trolling being undertaken by their colleagues in Government. Fine Gael triumphantly hailed the “good news” that fuel allowance recipients will get another €100 to help with the rising cost of living.

The image accompanying the announcement last Monday was two fine baskets full of turf. The symbolism was less than subtle. Never mind the environment, energy crisis or inflation, any opportunity for a dig at the Greens is lapped up by the Blueshirts. And the departure of two TDs from their ranks will merely reinforce the view that the Greens can be poked at.
