Who's outstroked whom?

Was postponing any further bank recapitalisations a prudent political move brought about by Fine Gael pressure, or an epic Fianna Fáil masterstroke?

EVERY DAY OF the campaign, TheJournal.ie puts one of the pressing issues of the campaign to the snap judgement of the public.

Today, we want to know who you think came out on top following Brian Lenihan’s decision to postpone the bank recapitalisation on the  the grounds that it had a “limited mandate”.

At 6.05pm yesterday, Fine Gael welcomed it as a prudent move, but by 6.25pm, Michael Noonan was accusing his counterpart of pulling a “political stroke”.

What do you think: was Fianna Fáil merely bowing to the inevitable under pressure from the Opposition, or was Lenihan pulling off the greatest stroke of the campaign so far?

Who wins?


Poll Results:
