Seems like the Cabinet table must be a little uncomfortable to judge from this spat.
The Minister of State for Regional Economic Development (Michael Ring) has responded angrily to claims by the Minister for Communications ( Denis Naughten ) that he “threw in the towel” on the issue of post offices.
“And as I say he’s like a lot of Independent ministers – they’re trying to shirk their responsibilities
Is this more than just Ring, in the sense is this an effort by FG to assert themselves away from the water debacle? And what does it tell us about the relationship more broadly with Independent Ministers,most of whom seem quite comfortable with the current arrangements?
