I've always wondered why Joan Burton is Labour's finance spokesperson. She has never held cabinet ministerial office before when we really need someone who has experience above all else. Her recent appearances on radio and TV have been poor and I think Varadkar was right to point out the flaws and lack of honesty or credible policy in the Eamon and Joan show.
Surely Ruairi Quinn would be a much better finance spokesperson. He's run the department of finance before and most importantly he did a decent job! If Labour wants to lead the next government they can't be letting amateurs into serious government departments. Fine Gael has brought back Michael Noonan because we need cool heads and experienced politicians to see us through the crisis.
Should Labour do the same and bring back Quinn?
