Interesting developments tonight regarding Croke Park 2.
FG and Labour resumed the threats on public sector workers. Desperate not to pass legislation a list of doom scenarios were issued - Job cuts, increment freezes etc. . . . - with public sector unions given two weeks to come up with something.
(Er. . .Someone should tell FG/Lab that there was a vote on this)
This information became available on RTE's website one hour before Micheál Martin was due to address the FF Ard Fheis live on national TV.
Currently it is the main headline on the RTÉ website. . . Relegating Martin to the secons spot.
Now the timing of this apparent new information seems suspect to me. Saturday night at 7.30 PM. . . Just one hour before the leader of the opposition makes a speech on national television.
FG and Labour appear to be resuming threatening public sector workers in order to screen out Martin's speech and grab the headlines.
I'd say FG and Labour (especially Labour) have reached a new low.
