Are Fianna Fáil the ones really in power?

Labour TD and former party leader Joan Burton spoke to George Hook on High Noon today.

It seems that Fianna Fáil will not support proposals to cap annual rent increases at 4%.

Housing Minister Simon Coveney has stated that the cap is not negotiable.

With the Government potentially needing the support of Fianna Fáil to get the proposal through the Dáil, it seems another impasse in the business of Government may have been reached.

After previous long running sagas involving the party's position on the likes of water charges, do we need to ask if Fianna Fáil are actually the ones in power in the Dáil?

George invited former Tánaiste Joan Burton onto High Noon to give her impression of not only the rent crisis, but also how business is being conducted in the halls of Leinster House.
