The arrogance of the govt is almost breathtaking.
Yet, they know how short the memories of the Irish electorate are. They've done this for the last few terms in office.
In the year after being re-elected they get all their dirty business done, and everyone is outraged, and promise "never again" will they vote for "that shower".
And the govt may take a bit of a hit in the local & european elections. But they KNOW that's as far as it goes.
In the year running up to the next election the "kind caring" FF put's on it's act and the electorate fall for it AGAIN.
FF are back in power and laugh to themselves at what they can get away with. No wonder they're giving themselves record pay rises, changing laws to give themselves extra pension entitlements, shut down cancer services and making a hames of new legislation. They have no fear, because they know that come election time, the great Irish public will do what their "fathers and grandfathers before them did", and will vote FF regardless.
It would drive you to despair.
