Madam -- At first glance, Junior Finance Minister Brian Hayes's remark, "I would be foolish to write off Fianna Fail. It is too early to write its obituary," (Sunday Independent, March 4, 2012) seems admirable. But if I was in government, I too would be keen to encourage Fianna Failers to remain in politics. The alternative would be terrifying. A political void. Which would mean a new political party forming, posing a credible opposition to government!
