    The greatest five year term in the history of the state. Give it 30 years and that will be the consensus.

      In 30 years time we will still be paying the interest on the billions given to the richest and most corrupt.

          You’d swear that they weren’t actually in the Dáil at the time… as if opposition TDs couldn’t raise a stink if they really disagreed. Noonan was head of the Public Accounts Committee at the time, which Joan Burton was also on.

          Did you notice either of them try to hold the govt to account and grilling them the same way that Mick Wallace or Clare Daly would?

          No, because they basically agreed, and just wanted to split hairs for the sake of seeming like an alternative.

          Noonan and Kenny turned worthless Anglo debt into state debt – they consolidated the scam that FF dropped us in to.

            +28BN. PromNight wont be mentioned on the pamphlets. The night with the largest takings in the Dail Bar seemingly – while FG engaged in a bit of ‘Laptgate’ – glad someone enjoyed the 28BN night out.

    By the time we’re all heading home, town is going to be coated in posters.

    When does he announce the date? Does he have to go to Squee first?

    The tine has come to put manners on those that see themselves as our betters, 5 years of thievery, cronyism
    Let’s bring down the gimp

      I think that you will find that a plurality of your fellow citizens disagree with you come election day…

        Not necessarily with enthusiasm though. Dejection, resignation and inertia might also explain it.

          At the end of the day, people will seek to act in their own self-interest. They will vote for the party that they feel will leave them with a few extra euro in their paypacket at the end of the month, etc., rather than the party that will promise the sun, moon & stars.

          Personally, I’m glad that most people will choose a party on this pragmatic basis rather than a belief that a party is absolutely perfect and will solve everything; I lived with a party loyalist before and found the attitude a bit creepy (regardless of the affiliation).

            “At the end of the day, people will seek to act in their own self-interest.”

            No, not necessarily. Obama wasn’t voted in because of that. Bernie Sanders isn’t seriously challenging Hillary Clinton because of that. People won’t necessarily be voting FG because they’re the best guys, it’ll often be because they’re too scared to vote for something new. Devil you know and all that.

          In this instance, it means:

          “the number of votes cast for a candidate who receives more than any other but does not receive an absolute majority.”

      2. Owen C

        Ireland is still a very conservative political environment. Despite the economic, social and political volatility of the last 5-10 years, 55-60% will still probably vote for FG, FF and Labour, with another 15-20% voting for a left wing party in SF that is no longer fringe and becoming more and more mainstream. So thats 70-80% voting for established parties, albeit SF obviously representing something a bit more edgy. But the only truly radical ‘parties’ (as opposed to unaffiliated) in terms of actual policies, or at the very least representing something “new”, will be AAA/PBP and Renua and they’ll represent only 5-6% of first preference. Ireland doesn’t do change, which has both positive and negative outcomes (personally, i see it as a positive right now given the uncertain global situation).

        Sadly that’s what they are hoping for, I’m hoping that enough people will remember how difficult it’s been. Even if it’s enough to put manners on them and give a flying f@&£.
        At the very least a bad result might mean they might finally get rid of the gimp. Let’s not forget they were being compared to the worst possible leader and the worst car crash government last Time out, and they still needed Labour to govern badly with them. Belled a is not a popular man, never has been
        I have a new slogan, instead of keep the cronyism and incompetence going, more easy to remember “bring down the gimp”

    Great, the city will look nice and tacky with plastic election posters hanging off every lamppost, just in time for the Rising commemorations.

    1. ReproBertie

      Fear not. The election will be in three weeks. The commemoration is in April which is a whole 2 months away.
