A Limerick A Day



Fianna Fáil’s Micheál Martin at Leinster House Yesterday

Fianna Fáil say that they feel,
They can’t accept Fine Gael’s deal,
They’ll seize the controls,
Or go back to the polls,
There’s a whole country still there to steal.

John Moynes

    Mr. Moynes is perfectly right;
    His rhyme is quite the zinger.
    If it goes to a vote, we really do hope,
    That Ireland give them the finger.

    Well they have the form…. re-run a vote until they get the result they want….

    Coalition Not in the best interests of the country . Lol.

    This is from the same party that decided in 1922 that it was in the best interests of the country to ignore the Treaty vote and take that same country to civil war.

  4. Tired old refrain

    FF and FG are just gees
    their posturing and preening is pee
    if they’d all just fupp off
    take their snouts from the trough
    we’d have a much better c8nt-ry

            lets’ drive those angry nordies back to their own country – Britain ;)

      Five sixths of an Island, 100% of a country.

      We’re a unitary country with no territorial claim on the North ;o)

        1. ahjayzis

          It’s not ‘nope’, relinquishing our territorial claims was passed in a referendum with 94% of the vote.

          NI is part of a separate state until such time as the majority both sides of the border decides otherwise.

          You might want it to be otherwise, but denial isn’t going to get you anywhere. The Republic is a country in it’s own right, nearly a century old with our own traditions, problems and characteristics of a nation. Both sides of the border have diverged massively since partition. That’s the way the cookie crumbled, sorry boutcha.

          1. ahjayzis

            Where am I wrong and where are you right? What legal or constitutional basis are you using to claim the republic isn’t whole?

          2. rotide

            Yes he has bought into it. As he says, 94% of the population bought into it.

            You don’t have to like it, but you do have to accept it.

          3. ahjayzis

            It’s not personal, but pining for the North and blaming all our problems on partition has held us back. If we don’t think we have a full nation, we won’t treat it and govern it like a full nation.

            It is what it is, Good Friday settled it, let’s knock the empty rhetoric on the head and move forward as two neighbours sharing an island and culture.

    Anyone that voted for FF, Labour, Greens or SF in the last election, take note. All four have stated they’re not interested in forming a government, so why the hell should anyone vote for them again? Even the Independent groups have said they’re not willing to go into government. Seems to be that they all just want to take the €87k salary and pension, and can’t be bothered to the job they were elected to do.

    Fire the whole lot of them! Which we will probably get the chance to do shortly.

      Spot on.
      They are supposed to be public representatives, in service to the State. The election process was democratic and the winning candidates should now take their seats regardless of what party banner they’re flying.
      The Prez should be whipping their asses.

    2. jack johnson

      Why didn’t you add FG to that list ? They are only interested in forming a government IF they’re the ones in control – but the numbers don’t tally so they try to blind us with their brilliance and get us to blame all the rest so we’ll vote for them in our droves next time round as the ONLY option for stability.Surely the electorate aren’t blind to their crafty wiles ???!!!???

      1. Harry Molloy

        how would they not be in control given they are the largest party?
        only if they would share leadership which was offered but rejected.

        their strategy, at this late stage has been a good one.

        I predict that the sometimes voters will be less likely to come out next time round and that the “protest” votes will suffer.

        I’m looking at you AAA and SF

          1. Harry Molloy

            it’s an objective opinion chief! and it’s a fact that they did offer to share leadership.

            you were probably too busy making banana pancakes to notice :-)
