The Fine Gael promises for the Irish consumer were trotted out by Phil Hogan and Richard Bruton. You can read their press release on the FG website by clicking here.
I can’t really comment because there’s nothing there. They’re mentioning their www.ripoff.ie website again as a positive step – not really a governmental response to a problem.
They mention better regulation, new institutional structures and laws and attention to something mysteriously called “sheltered sectors”. Have I won yet? I must have ticked all jargon words in some party political Wank Word Bingo.
Still they are the only party to promise Irish consumers not a whole lot in this election campaign. Lets wait and see what the rest of them come up with.
