Minister’s brother on the miraculous recovery that [almost] no one feels…

Not a great start to the campaign on what should be their strongest card, the economy. Now the Minister of Agriculture’s brother rather inconveniently adds his tuppenceworth:

While hailing the achievements of the Government in turning around the economy, Greencore CEO Patrick Coveney said the “great mystery” of the recovery is that “no-one feels it”.
At a business conference in Cork, Mr Coveney questioned the success of the Government in ensuring the benefits of the economic recovery were evenly felt across all sectors of society.Mr Coveney described the revival in the country’s economic fortunes as “unprecedented”.

 But he said the rising tide hasn’t lifted everyone and “loads of people have been left behind”.
