Who speaks for Alliance?

This morning Kieran McCarthy was on Nolan to complain about how useless the Executive is. He mentioned how they were doing nothing on home repossessions, so Nolan pushed him on what he would have them do. He said the Alliance would have the state pay for mortgages to prevent repossessions. Asked at least twice if this was Alliance policy, the answer was “yes”, despite being unable to say how much this would cost. At the end of the show, an Alliance statement was forthcoming, stating that this in fact is not the case. Which is odd.
