Hunting them out

I AM bemused by the fact that all those Fianna Fáil TDs who objected so strongly to having to vote for a ban on stag hunting last summer didn’t undergo any crisis of conscience over punishing the blind, the disabled, family carers, low-paid workers and social welfare recipients in the budget.

But the FF hunters will become the hunted. They will be chased out of office, run to ground, dug out, and thrown to the waiting pack — the electorate.
