In 2004, the neo-liberal ideologues (Harney and McCreevy) left eoconomic policy in the hands of Ahern, Cowen and (unbelievably) Mary Coughlan (!). with predictable results.
By the time the Greens got there, the damage was done and the entire ponzi scheme began to unravel. If the Greens are to be criticised for anything, it is for hanging on for pensions and propping up a drunk, criminally-inclined and utterly incompetent cabal of contemptable cretins. I, for one, will never forgive the Greens for that.
