FINE Gael and Labour's refusal to agree on joint policies before the election will end up as a licence to break their promises to the electorate once they are in government.
The policies that are currently being proposed by the two parties are so different that there will be many compromises to be made before they can form a government.
An example of this can be seen in the UK when the Liberal Democrats had to break their promise on student fees.
If these two parties cannot agree on a plan for government before the electorate votes, it will cause great unrest among the people once a new government is in place.
