    OMG, would you look at that picture of that super rat on The Star.
    It looks so cute and cuddly. I want one.

      Ah, Fine Gael are back to “warning” us again! I was getting quite lonely without my daily WARNING.

    I think The Star reprints the same bullpoo every three months.

    Buying it is like paying a moron tax

      This will strengthen Trump, he will use it to show how the establishment is out to get him.

    Assuming it’s true, it is the Indo after all, I think that Martin is being somewhat disingenuous by playing the ‘keep SF out’ card. The real fear is of a Fianna Gael brand forming in the minds of the general public.

    A minority government will not last the term and because of the over arching cynicism of the electorate, SF will gain big time next time around. As for this arrogant ‘we were not elected to go into a collation’ nonsense that has been spouted. That is exactly what they were elected to do because that is how the system was designed in the first place.

      These people as is the case with the anti Shinner gobspoos who post on here are completely divorced from the reality of life for a large swathe of the public.
      I believe Higgins will force them to make a gubbermint

        So, y being anti-SF one divorces themselves from the reality of life for a large swathe of the public. All those poor deluded AAAs, PBPs, SocDems, don’t mention all the independents, Direct Democracy crowd… hell what about Freemen of the land, and whatever others are havin’ themselves… sure we’re all mad Ted, because we’re not supporting SF

        People are anti SF for varying reasons.

        Those who remember the horrible things but given the recent disclosure that British Intelligence played a part in the Shankhill bombing in Belfast, the whole thing was a sick and very violent mess. But we have moved on from that now, I hope.

        Then there are those who do not trust the current SF admin. Who feel that there is a subversive element at play. That is a reasonable emotion but dig into the backroom dealings of Fianna Gael and you will see that they are far from squeaky clean either.

        Next is the anti republican brigade. Those who under no circumstances want a United Ireland being discussed. But, if Britain leaves the EU and border controls are applied to the island (of Britain), Irish unification will become a very hot topic.

        The status quo. This crew are establishment who will take issue with anything other than the two centre right parties flip flopping while hanging junior partners out to dry. To them change means loss, usually personal loss.

        Last are the opportunists, mainly politicos and paid media. They would do a deal with the devil if it saved their own hide. FF would go into government with SF except the ‘bride’ may not be happy to see them. Do your own research on that reference | clue being a month of the year.
