Is he not also spokesperson for Economic Planning (he is according to the wiki page). Economic planning is the responsibility for D/Finance, and so he should be on the FG Finance team if he really has that job for them.Still b*llh*tting as usual.
Hayes is deputy Finance spokesman, you idiot. The others were the Finance team.
Those at the meeting from the parties were the Finance spokespersons and their team. Bruton is not on the Finance team.
Even you should know the difference. Enterprise spokespeople weren't at the meeting, just Finance spokespersons.
Of course, it's possible that he doesn't really, and that Noonan has responsibility for it, but it was appended to his job description for the optics.
Either way, it's a fair question, Tommy. Either he isn't the FG front-bench spokesperson responsible for Economic Planning, in which case why is it in his title, or he is, in which case why wasn't he at the meeting today?
