Seriously, Fianna Fáil can do better than this.

Sean Fleming TD’s odd intervention on the property tax, where he either a) did not read the legislation but nevertheless managed to have a strong opinion on it, b) read it but did not understand it, or c) was being deliberately obtuse in selectively interpreting it as a political stunt.

Whatever was the reason, he made Fianna Fáil look bad. I find this particularly annoying because it is not as if this government has not lied enough about real things that it should be held to account on, as opposed to deliberately omitting facts.

Fianna Fail is actually above this sort of stuff, and it’s not often you’ll hear me say that.

My head hurts just from watching him. Do elected members read legislation?
