A former leader of Fine Gael says some members of the party need wise up.
Alan Dukes’ comments follow reports that Enda Kenny could lead Fine Gael into the next election.
According to the Sunday Independent the Taoiseach is planning to fight for a third term – if the Government falls in the New Year.
Meanwhile, the leader of Fianna Fáil has accused the Government of being distracted and detached from the job at hand.
Micheál Martin says last week’s scenes in the Dáil over new rent caps proved Fine Gael isn’t focused on making policies to run the country. After days of negotiations new limits on rent increases – in so called pressure zones -were passed late on Friday night.
