Micheál Martin sitting on the fence as he always has

I suggest that Fianna Fail leader, Micheál Martin, is doing exactly what Michael Martin does best: i.e, sitting on the fence.

This is what Michael did while serving as a government minister, when the ‘dogs on the streets’ knew what was going on with politicians.

He kept his mouth closed, sat at the Cabinet table, protecting his ministerial salary and pension. The leaders of 1916 must be turning in their graves at the political leadership of this country today.
