The Lee Lesson

28th June, 2010

When George left the party I thought the sky would fall in on us. It didn’t. After the O’Donoghue resignation I thought the same would happen.

It didn’t. After the difficulties of a week ago I wasn’t sure what to think.

Thankfully this trend has held up. In fact we registered a slight gain in last week’s poll. Why? 2 reasons I think.

Firstly, people expect some of this behaviour from political parties. They make allowances for the fact that we too have differences of opinion.

Secondly, it’s not about the real world. It’s about bubble politics. What happens inside Leinster House. People have enough cares of their own, they don’t care about ours.
