Grown-up politics for Ireland, please

I SEE that since November, the junior part of our Government has been distancing itself from Fianna Fail – no fada intended! Coincidentally, our esteemed Finance Minister is begging Brussels for our loan interest rates to be lowered.

Maybe I'm just not in on it but it seems like a bad joke to hope Jose Manuel Barroso would give up a good moneymaking exercise in Ireland because we ask nicely and in light of such political division here.

Maybe everyone in Government and the Dail would like to put on their grown-up pants and focus on Ireland instead of hoping for re-election, so that younger generations can have a future here and not have to go abroad.
