FG wooing the low-paid voters next time around
Fine Gael today gives the first hint of its economic manifesto for the General Election next spring. It will contain a welcome emphasis on job creation and make a direct pitch for the votes of the low-paid workers. Happily, it will prioritise work over welfare.
Fine Gael's economic electoral strategy, as revealed in this newspaper, is based on three interlinked steps.
Step one is to create more and more jobs around the country. The 12.5pc company tax rate is to be defended at all costs in order to protect inward investment.
