Insider has closely observed your political career since you were first elected to Dáil Éireann in 1989, and believes you are now at your most politically content since that time.

Therefore, when you hear, see or read members of the opposition, they hope you will feel worse afterwards: mission accomplished in their view. This approach extends beyond their attempts to manipulate both broadcast and print media, it becomes all consuming for them. Take the recent ‘Raise the Roof’ march in Dublin: it is all part of the attempt to create disruption and sow seeds of discontent which will make voters think ‘we can do better than this’.
