      dunno
      they seem to be filling FF’s shoes….

      what’s wrong with bringing a no confidence motion if in fact the country by and large have no confidence in him??

      they’re right to do it…just stole thunder perhaps from others that shoulda done it already

      1. Happy Molloy

        because it’s a waste of time as the government have a majority.

        another one from the shinners which ultimately wastes everyone’s time.

          1. Alfred E. Neumann

            That’s a good question. Is there a limit to the number of motions someone can propose? Does this use up a spot that could have gone to something substantive?

          2. Stephanenny

            So the options are either a) do nothing or b) do this.

            If those our only two options then we’re definitely spending too much money on the dáil. If you’ve got spare time for this shite then you’re getting paid too much.

    Sinn Fein should be made watch videos of themselves fupp-acting so they gradually become more self-aware

    1. Happy Molloy

      they’re like the couple of lads in your class in second year who had no real interest in learning or doing anything constructive so they would just cause disruption, partially because they were knackers and partially because they had no idea what they were actually meant to be doing

  2. Stephanenny

    That’s not breaking news. Breaking news should be about stuff that is going to have some kind of impact. It’s a waste of time, nothing else. We’re paying them all to make a completely pointless gesture.

    Unless they’ve become besties with labour without telling anyone.

    like children….I dislike kenny as much as the next man and think he has been a poor leader but this is tiem wasting guff

    See how many FG and Lab are honest! Of course the government parties headed by Enda have given the people no confidence in their administration. Go SF (although I still acknowledge that you represent a shadowy social nationalist political element that is happy to dismiss murder, sectarianism and child abuse)

    1. Odis

      I really don’t see what all the fuss is about with Irish Gravy.
      Water is the one of the most precious resources in the world. So living in Enda’s Ireland is like have diamonds rain down on our heads, 365 days a year. People should look for the bigger picture.

  5. Just sayin'

    Next week’s SF stunt is taken care of so. Must get a Sinn Fein advent calendar where behind each window is the latest Shinner circus.

  6. Soundings

    Happy Christmas to you and yours Enda and a Prosperous New Heave, love Gerry (leader statitvus of the biggest political party in the country according to the three most recent opinion polls, and according to the Euro elections in Northern Ireland)

  7. Starina

    SF will get a nasty little surprise if they cause an election. We don’t want ANY of the parties, lads!!

    1. paul m

      But we all partied. And still like to party. That’s the problem. Change the political nomenclature from party to caretakers and the fun times element will no longer be associated with this shower of greaseballs.

  8. JimmytheHead

    careful lads, next thing Gerrys gonna be housing paedophiles in the spare rooms at the Dáil and knee-capping anyone who doesnt agree with him right?

    right?

    wrong.

    have some common sense and maybe watch some Oireachtas TV to see the childish nonsense FF/FG/Labour spout on a daily basis, instead of just catching the heavily edited highlights on six one. SF may be the so called “political wing of the IRA” but they address more relevant issues than anyone other party, except maybe a few independents

      1. paul m

        True. Can’t think of the last time a party in opposition sank the minister for justice and the garda commissioner. These independent technical/alliance groups are on to something…

  9. Willie Banjo

    It’s tied to water charges so in effect it will be a roll call of TDs who support or oppose the current set up. Then, when an election comes around, the voter can have some clarity (whether they oppose or support the same system).

    1. paul m

      Anyone in FG will claim they were whipped and they had to vote with the party. Handy little number, turn on each other after the election.

  10. edalicious

    The Dáil has basically turned into one big, ineffectual, mud-slinging, toddler-tantruming, time-wasting shit heap. Politics is seriously broken in this country. I reckon they should all be taken out and given a very stern talking to by some matronly old headmistress, told to cop the funk on and to stop bickering while the country is falling down around them.

    1. CousinJack

      Don’t think that calling in the Papal Nuncio to adjucate our politics is appropriate anymore, but I’m Mrs Merkel is available if required with EU military brigades et al

  11. Dubloony

    I think they are trying to out-protest the independents.
    They are looking at the polls and are still peed off that Paul Murphy got his seat in the by-election and not them.

  12. Frilly Christmas Everyone*

    Don’t be so quick t’throw out the “So What’s Government have a majority” ladies

    ‘Cause every Labour Trough Eater and Fine Girl Ya Are TD that’s votes to support Confidence in Edna will he named and shamed

    And then have make their way to their constituencies for the Christmas Holliers ( till March probably)
