'Progressive' Micheal surprised Cork voters

READING Micheal Martin's response to David Quinn's critique of FF, it struck me that a significant percentage of Cork people who proudly backed Micheal were not fully informed about how much of a social 'progressive' he is.

He managed to keep his head pretty low when others were banging the progressive drum loudly -- ie Dan Boyle (and need I say more about the outcome there). Micheal can duck and dive well -- bordering on the slippery.

It would be refreshing, if not surprising, if Micheal would spell out exactly what his socially 'progressive' plans are -- and I am confident voters might just be more cautious in their support next time.
