In the same vein of saying that FF didn't carry out it's election promises is incorrect. FF may well have done the same as FG if they'd have managed to get elected.
maybe it's a good thing that none of the high profile promises of the campaign have been followed thru. Some of them they botched(the committee ref, the household charge) Failed on upward only rent reviews; withrawing on legal reform, little in health care bar some small closures and hard to tell what the hell is going on in education( 6months after a major policy shift deadline has expired) though lots of sentiment.
The jobs initiative was a farce; as was resinstating the min wage. Every other policy gets trotted out with TINA. They haven't taken full ownership of the situation and continue to attribute current policy to previous FF govt.
Stating that FG/Lab haven't delivered on promises is perfectly correct!
