      Yes , I won’t be sorry to see the back of him. We have to use kerosene where we live , no gas , it is 300 euros dearer per 1000 litres than the north due to his succession of taxes he implemented. On top of that , you’ve got the convoluted return scheme for cans and plastic he just introduced,
      A few years ago he incentivised diesel engines over petrol , now rowing back on that. God knows what he has put the agri sector under after being minister for such a long period
      Throw in his condescending voice and carving up our roads for bikes , the list is endless.

          Not sorry to see him go.I notice the price of diesel has dropped at the pumps, When I drive to Wexford the petrol stations between Balloon and Bunclody are cheaper than most others forecourts you pass...

            Yes that’s because the price of a barrel has gone down. Not the taxes.

                  Martin is no loss. I know Eamon has a lot of hate, only have to look when his name is mentioned here but he had some good wins. The Enterprise train service has improved and cheaper this side of the border. Overhaul of rail fleet, expansion of the DART, start of planning for Cork version of the DART. 90min fare. On a EU level he helped get the Climate Change legislation accepted by member states despite opposition from the powerful farming lobby here backed by the likes of Goodman.

                  He did a good job overhauling his party after John Gorman stood down and getting the Greens back in government while his deputy stabbed him in the back and his chief negotiator in the program for government claimed ignorance of what she negotiated.

                        I wonder who will be the next Taoiseach since he's been running the show since the start of this coalition since he had them all by the goolies.

                            SF didn’t run enough candidates in the last general elections and a lot of their second preference votes went to the greens I don’t think many if any of them won on first preference votes, another thing there was a lot of FF and FG canvassers running down the greens on the doorstep’s because they knew that the greens policies were not popular with the electorate
