Blaming society for FF's ills

HOW dare Micheal Martin blame wider society for a "lazy" consensus over how the country was run during recent years ('Martin blasts Dail business', Irish Independent, February 15).

Fianna Fail was voted in by the people and we expected it to do its job. I didn't realise I also had to oversee its work on a daily basis.

Should I have been conducting monthly performance reviews?

As a party leader he feels comfortable bringing forward political reform that he could not do while serving as a minister.

Should we then rid ourselves of these impotent ministers and have a cabinet of one?
