John Gormley yesterday

1st December, 2010

The statement by John Gormley yesterday has prompted a mean spirited response from many. There’s no doubt that it’s a bit rich coming from him but he did describe, well I thought, the frustrations and difficulties of life in Government. The only thing is that he himself, by the actions of his Government, has contributed to a narrowing of the options in the first place. But, I’m sure that there will be others sharing his views soon.

The bad thing about his views is that his attitude will obviously colour his decisions on policy. I’d like to see people talk far more about the possibilities of Government, not the limitations.
