Hard going ahead for Republic’s opposition?

Having listened to last night’s Dail private member’s debate (of no confidence) in the current government’s record, this ‘guy’ has a point a lacklustre opposition (barring Olwyn Enright). However, Adam over at Irish Election, (in response to an earlier post) has a point too that the junior parties to the opposition (ie those outside the Mullingar Accord electoral pact), may be good on branding but are short on policy development.
