No Tallaght II

Fine Gael has said 'No' to a rerun of the Tallaght Strategy. Well good for them, but this was hardly a tough decision. Back in the 80s there was some justification for adopting their 'no opposition' policy because (a) the straits were more dire and (b) they had played an active role in creating the dire straits.

Fine Gael's been in government for, what, 2½ years out of the past 20? Why should they now roll over "in the national interest" because Fianna Fail has mismanaged us into this mess. I know FF's in a heap of trouble because Joan Burton's starting to sound like a safer pair of hands.
