Fine Gael should split the Finance portfolio

My own take on the line up for the new FG Front Bench is that the plan as suggested at the time of George Lee’s departure that the area of Finance and the economy needs a long term view in addition to someone to respond to the day to day eruptions should be put into effect. Michael Noonan should be the person to face off with Lenihan on the day to day stuff with Richard Bruton handling the medium to longer term evolution of our policy proposals. It would be double teaming of the highest order, but will we take the chance it represents?

    Ultimately, this is something government should be doing as well, and not just because the current health problems of the minister.

    Management of public finances and the management of the national economy are not the same thing.
