Dan Boyle, the financial spokesperson for the Green Party, is running in this general election on the platform: ‘Dan Boyle – Honest And True’. But whatever about the veracity of this claim and, let’s face it, politicians are well known for their exaggerations, there appears to be a clear loss of memory by Dan when it comes to owning up to his famous ‘achievements’. Like, for example, bringing the IMF in. Or, like cutting the dole. Or, like consigning a generation of Irish people to a future of emigration. read full story / add a comment
