Resignation is act of disloyalty

GEORGE Lee's resignation is an act of disloyalty to the 27,000 people who voted for him and to the hundreds of people who canvassed for him. More than that, it is an act of gross betrayal to Fine Gael, which invested faith, time, and great energy in him.

Yes, he is a qualified economist, but Fine Gael Senator Eugene Regan has vastly superior academic economic qualifications.
