    I was so happy until I read FF paid for it. Surely there’s some wealthy philanthropist out there willing to spend a few quid on educating people? Can’t rely on mainstream media anyway.

      I was going to say let them blow their money attacking each other, until I remembered it’s actually our money. Bastards

      They were pushed for space. They couldn’t even manage to fit ‘the scandal of patients on trolleys which Fianna Fail also didn’t end despite successive years in power during a period of unprecedented economic prosperity.’

      I think it would be classed as ‘fair comment’; it’s clear from the tone that it expressing an opinion.

      Not really. They have a cast-iron commitment and process in place to abolish 4bn worth of revenue through the USC and their health policy was abandoned in it’s entirety late last year.

          Yep, their words.

          In fairness it’s one they’re likely to keep – they want taxes so low we can’t even begin to adequately provide public services.

    Well, as my old man used to say ” That bates Banagher”
    These bastards really dont do shame, do they?.

    Oh my goooooooooood this boils my piss.

    It was FIVE YEARS ago Fianna Fail, we CAN actually remember a similar, if not the same, trolley crisis when your government was ROLLING in money.

    They’re so awful they make me sound like I’m defending rotten Tory Gael. The two of them would sicken your hole.

    The two parties should continue to share posters throughout the campaign.
    The slogan could be: Let’s not split hairs here. We’re both great at looking after the rich with your taxes

        Save ink? But the what Enda & Michael’s highly paid friends in charge of ink, and the very expensive ink consultants? Not to mention the party slogan thinker uppers, & their consultants, & the very costly consultants for consultants. Think of their jobs. They have mansions to pay for you know.

    ff & fg – 2 different cheeks of the same arse, sh1tt1ng on this nation and her citizens since the foundation of the state.

    “Mayor Quimby supports revolving door prisons. Mayor Quimby even released Sideshow Bob. A man twice convicted of attempted murder. Can you trust a man like mayor Quimby? Vote Sideshow Bob for Mayor.”

      “My worthy opponent thinks that the voters of this state are gullible fools. I, however, prefer to rely on their intelligence and good judgement.”

    If the best argument you have is to attack the other guy, why exactly should I vote for you?
