Shock/Horror! Fianna Fail puts the party first. (Er….is that news?)
8 November, 2010
According to today’s Irish Independent,
Social Protection Minister Eamon O Cuiv was last night appointed Fianna Fail’s campaign manager in the upcoming by-election, even though he is due to oversee a raft of welfare cuts in next month’s Budget. The appointment of a key Budget minister to the role is set to provoke accusations that Fianna Fail is putting the interests of the party ahead of the needs of the country. Mr O Cuiv will have to dedicate large amounts of time to the Donegal South West by-election in the coming weeks amid growing worry among welfare recipients over planned cuts to their income.
Fianna Fáil putting the interests of the party ahead of the needs of the country: not exactly “Man Bites Dog“, is it?
