Tears for Sean Haughey?

Sean Haughey may well believe that there has to be more to politics than electoral advantage, but where was his anger when the lives of thousands of civil servants were thrown into confusion by the "McCreevy/Parlon Decentralisation Stroke"?

Nothing has more blatantly typified "politics for electoral advantage" on a more massive scale in recent years. Yet it was loudly cheered by Sean and his FF colleagues, who couldn't fail to recognise it for the "political stroke" it clearly was.

Sean can at least console himself that he doesn't have to uproot his family and move to Parlon Country.
