Interesting piece today in the Sunday Business Post penned by Deputy O'Ríordáin.
The TD believes that Labour were sent into government to do one thing - "get the country back in reasonable economic fettle". He believes those who have left the parliamentary party are putting "individual interest before the national". A couple of paragraphs pointing out it was all FF's mess was followed by stating that FG/Lab have turned things around. Stablised the situation.
The promissory note deal, modest signs of domestic growth, resistance to cutting social welfare core payments, reversing min wage cut, stopping FG from dramatically reducing the public sector pay and numbers, taking 330,000 people on the lowest wages out of the tax net, are evidence of the hard working Labour TD's in this coalition. Getting people back to work, creating jobs is ongoing.
And we'll have abortion and same sex marriage.
What about it folks? Would we have seen these "achievements" without the Labour Party in government?
