Ireland- Green Party spin cannot hide the truth

The Green Party has abandoned most of its core principles in the rush to join a coalition government with FF and the PDs.
In opposition it strongly opposed US military use of Shannon Airport. On entering government it made a u-turn. It has u-turned on incineration and on co-location. It has lost out on the M3. New building regulations announced today will require all new homes to be 40% more energy efficient from next year. However last week the Greens cut 'The Greener Homes Scheme' . Instead of slashing grants to existing householders who wish to reduce energy usage, funding should have been increased.

Green Ministers wax lyrical about the harmony between themselves and FF Ministers. We are informed that there is no interference from the FF side. This is easily explained by the fact that the Green Party sold out on its principles and accepted FF policies hook line and sinker.The Greens are being absorbed by FF. FF never looks a gift horse in the mouth. The Greens- having sold out on their core principles- are now busily endeavouring to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
