Despite its massive majority, I don't think the FG/LAB coalition has been particularly impressive or forthright since its election. The whole leaky mess over the budget and the piddling, laughable changes to massive pensions yesterday being cases in point. Not a shinner, but Pearce Doherty is a very competent politician. He ripped apart the pension cuts for top earners yesterday, and rightly so. Overall, this government has a massive majority and should lead with radical reform, but it has singularly failed to live up to the need for real, transformative leadership. It has been far too cautious and slip-shod, it certainly isn't a government that inspires confidence, or seems to have a clear plan.
