Higgins view on the reshuffle

Reshuffle madness took over Leinster House this week as Taoiseach Brian Cowen finally did what others have been pressing him to do for a long time.

The Green Party shenanigans in advance of the reshuffle just added more fuel to the fire that they really are a bunch of loopers.

Former TD and now MEP Joe Higgins hit the nail on the head on Tuesday when he said that the Green Party preoccupation with ministerial positions has more to do with self-preservation than policy.

“The drive by John Gormley for the inclusion of deputies White and Cuffe to be included among the newly appointed junior ministers is nothing more than a desperate attempt to give them a raised profile with the vain hope that will save their electoral bacon,” he said.
