Fine Gael’s attack on the suggested Commission scrutiny of national budgets is infuriating to people like me, who should be natural FG voters. The fact is, our currency is in big trouble because there has not been enough scrutiny and peer review of national budgets, and we know damn well that if FG were in government now they would have no problem with this proposal.
FG can’t keep opposing things just because Fianna Fail suggest it. They just can’t. The country has just witnessed an exciting and fascinating electoral contest next door, and an exciting outcome. Meanwhile, our chief opposition party is still engaged in a school yard jersey pulling level of politics. It’s time for FG to grow up. We can’t afford this shit anymore, and if they don’t cop themselves on they’re going to drive people like me to Fianna Fail if only because they are actually (by forced necessity, admittedly) doing the right thing.
