Watching RTE news this evening it was interesting to note the make up of the the FG team going into the Dept. of Finance briefings. Obviously Noonan had to be there but with him was Brian Hayes who isn't even on the front bench and two others I can't put names on. The absence of Richard Bruton, who is their spokesman on Economic Planning, was striking. One would have imagined that it was very relevant to his job. He would surely have had a better grasp of the matters than the other 3 nonentities so why was he excluded?
Is Kenny still mowing the long grass?
