    “Most voters don’t decide their preferences until the last few days before the vote.”

    really? I’d be very surprised if that’s true

      I’d have to say I’d agree with their assessment. I’ve spent a lot of time reading up on it and I’m still back and forth between 2 parties.

      I’d say people have a firm #1 and #2, a definite “i wont give them a vote”, but the rest are up for grabs….

      …or perhaps that’s just me?

        I’d agree as regards the 1,2 and possibly 3. But not that the rest are up for grabs. That’s because when there’s a decisive 1,2 and 3, there’s also a decisive ‘last or no votes for x,y and z’
        The in-between ones may well be up for grabs.

    Oh dear. This is like basing your purchasing decisions on what the salesman tells you.

    You should be voting on past performance in office (for returning and current politicians) and also look at who exactly is supporting them (their base).

    Dear Parties,
    I have read your manifestos with deep interest, but they say almost nothing about music.
    Yours sincerely

    PS: Ludwig van Beethoven was born in 1770, 250 years ago. What are youse going to do about it apart from a couple of photo opportunities?

    Sinn Fein will not be in Government it will be Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and the
    Greens if they need them, however in order to keep the Shinners at bay they will
    end up implementing most of their policies like what Fine Gael and Labour did
    nine years ago in adopting Fianna Fails…..ironic

    How’s about a law that means parties must carry out what they suggested in their manifestos within the year, otherwise another election is called and heavy fines for that party?
