@conor_pope Government gave commitment in relation to High Court case on Donegal SW. Greens believe by-elections need to be held together.
Indeed, but that was then (13 hours ago). It is different now.

If Donegal S/W goes ahead but Dublin South is delayed, they will hammer the nails into the cofin of Eamonn Ryan's political career.

The Glasraí make it up as they go along - whether it be going into gov with FF, O Dea or now, by elections.

A politican makes a U-Turn - never!!!!

The Green Party's left hand doesn't know what its right hand is doing. Their commander in chief wasn't long jumping on the public backlash of goverment cars and making calls for a 'pooling system'. He is surely the Eamonn Dunphy of Irish politics.

This should finally ensure that after the General Election ALL the Greens will be history and I say AMEN TO THAT.

They learnt brass neckery long before they joined FF.
Trevor Sargent did a bit of celebrity come dancing on a pin head with the a green angel to deliver his party into governemnt with FF in 2007.

I heard him on the RTE at 1:30 trying to scramble up on to the high ground on this one. It's a bit late now, Dan, the time to have ascended to that lofty height is long gone. Prepare to see the bottom of the pit instead. Adieu!

They've lost all credibility. Time to throw out the Greens - they're well past their sell by date.

The Greens are a shower of spoofers ... pandering on the fence rubbish

People won't buy it - They're toast

And they know it too ...

I've said this a load of times, the greens need to pull down the government to have ANY hope at all. If they are still around the cabinet table when it all comes crashing down then they are doomed. They need some moral high ground issue to walk on.
