You’ve Always Been The Caretaker

This morning.

Trinity College Dublin

Acting Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Leo Varadkar speaking at the Institute of International & European Affairs (IIEA) half-day conference on ‘Europe and the Future’.

Boo.

Hist.

Meanwhile

Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil will hold talks later today in Dublin – the first time the two parties will sit down for discussions since the General Election was held on 8 February.

However, Fine Gael sources continue to stress that these talks are not about government formation, but rather exchanges of policy positions.

    FFG have been in a mutual ‘confidence and supply’ ‘arrangement’ since 2016.
    2 tenets of that mutual reach around were –
    • Recognition of Fianna Fáil’s right to bring forward policy proposals and bills to implement commitments in its own manifesto
    • have an open approach to avoiding policy surprises

    Why would the same 2 parties need to ‘exchange policy position’ when it was already agreed in the previous programme for government?

    Surely their policies are the same as before which is the very reason almost 50% of the electorate voted for them.

    I’m sure they are both desperate to continue swinging the lead for another 5 years but to claim ‘policy exchange’ as the fuel for Frankensteins monster isn’t just insulting to the electorate it’s wasteful as this ‘exchange of ideas (ha!)’ happened 4 years ago.
