    The death has been announced of the former leader and founder of the Progressive Democrats. What is his political legacy? Did he achieve his ambition to "break the mould" of Irish politics. I think not. He was a great exponent of political rhetoric and had integrity and bravery but all of that was negated by one gigantic act of hypocrisy - forming a coalition government with his arch nemesis Charles J. Haughey.
