Front page of Sunday Times, today, 25th November.
If anything points up the rank rotten nature of the Fine Gael party, then this does.
The thrust of the story is that Labour, in a casual allusion to their working class roots, have proposed an increase in USC for workers earning over €100,000 euro per annum. Why that figure? Methinks they're reading the Sinn Fein website.
The larger government partner apparently have returned serve with a volley that they will then target social welfare. What, tell me in the name of suffering Christ have social welfare recipients done that they should be targeted by Fine Gael in this way.
Without resorting to Godwin's, it's not up there with the Nazis policy of wiping out the village when they were attacked by the Free French or the partizans,but you see the mindset in play here. You attack our guys, we attack your guys (stifles a laugh). For the nth time, I can't explain why, aside from arithmetical purposes, Labour are in coalition with these guys.
