FINE Gael deputy Lucinda Creighton is correct to highlight the similarities in the gombeen politics of Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil. She should now do the honourable thing by striking out on her own before she gets thrown out of the party.
Like all patriarchal structures, FG won’t change for a woman who, like Creighton, was taken on board just to be their poster girl. If Ms Creighton continues as she is, the only head she will keep hitting off a wall is her own. She should also know by now that Irish politics subscribes to the adage that a dog wins friends by wagging its tail and not by growling. This will never change.
