Yes. Mick Barry for Taoiseach … in Confidence and Supply agreement with the other 159. Stop Guy … stop.
What that really proves how much of a small country ireland is
he’s not wrong, any coalition of the left would be a rag-tag collection that would fall apart in no time and do more harm to their ideas than good. also, they have been caught on the hop as nobody predicted the swing to the left so they are totally unprepared for gov even if the numbers were there. better off to build a proper left with another term in opposition now that it has been proven that left represents the mainstream and is not just a few dogmatists shouting in protest.
The other option is the ff-sf-green coalition which could literally work out anyway. into the unknown.
A number 6, blazing saddles style!
yes stephen, now f**k off
You’d swear Jim Allister wrote that headline.
Thankfully not many listen to him either.
These kuntz and there little leadership contest. Please let AK get it so that they finally implode and dissolve.
I hope somebody new gets it and rebuilds the party. I’d like to see a stronger left wing party choice that doesn’t have the suspicious odour of explosives and kneecapping.
Your posts are normally intelligent but that one wasn’t. All over this planet, there are political parties who have violent pasts. SF is not the only party here that has. You have probably already voted for parties who have a whiff of cordite in their origins. Labour should fold its tent and join the Doc Dem’s if it wants to build a left voice/vote.
We really have got the best collection of clowns as elected representatives . But do you know what - maybe we get what we deserve …
convicted terrorists , baboons in kerry , the toff elite and another party who gave more backhanders then the mafia
we reap what we sow - we elect gobshites , gangsters and terrorists . we deserve every bit
Jesus lads, youse are so overly defensive about the shinners!
I object to former terrorists being elected. And please don’t raise any nonsense about the war of independence - that’s not the same.
Sinn Fein would have more credibility with me if they ditched them . until then I can’t vote for them. I don’t vote FG or FF either but they’ll never get my vote hanging onto the dinosaurs
Yes. I have voted SF in the 1990s. With reservations. But their IRA links clearly turn off many people. A left wing party without such baggage would be a good option to have for the electorate. I’m interested in a government that treats people decently and personally dont really care who is involved as long as it happens.
Utopian nonsense: the figures indicate a booming economy therefore all is well; beatings will continue until morale improves.
What’s the obsession with having a left and right party? I don’t think either work…somewhere in the middle taking what’s good about both ideology is where we need to be.
Just out of interest how many current TDs are convicted terrorists?
I can’t believe they’re going to go into a grand coalition- SF will clean up next election.
