Time to see the bigger picture
Madam --The reaction by the Opposition leaders and some media people to Angela Merkel's solo run is truly shocking. This is the time when, instead of wrongly attacking the Taoiseach, they should stand by our country against Merkel's effort to bury us completely.
Spitting fire on this issue would be much more appropriate and effective.
A broad national resentment towards her would strengthen the Taoiseach's hand in the tough negotiations ahead.
