With the collapse in the Labour/Fine Gael alternative have Fine Gael finally become irrelevant?
They have had 3 years experience from the last 20 years of government.
The Progressive Democrats have more combined ministerial experience than the entire Fine Gael Front Bench combined.
Lesson number one: if you want to be in government and have a real affect on the running of your country then do NOT join Fine Gael.
Lesson number two: if you want to spend your life on the opposition benches shouting across at those who actually have the real power then join Fine Gael.
