Toisin Shortall on driveyime just said they would defenitely not link up with SF.

Thank god for that . Can you imagine how the electorate would ditch you if you got into bed with Labour.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but for a fact I won't vote for Labour if they do and I won't even give them a 2nd preference. And I'm a Labour voter.

Labour don't need SF. They have FG and possibly FF if they want to lead a government or alternativly sit out the next government which has its hands tied and form a left of centre opposition.

This link up with Labour talk could damage SF

Hmm, perhaps the talk of a link up between Labour & SF is just FF talk to damage both those parties?

Did anyone hear Joan Burton on the One O'Clock news?

Presenter: Do you rule out Sinn Fein as a party in a future coalition?

JB: er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, well, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, I have to say, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, the thing is, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, er, we have not made any approaches to them.

Well I have just read some of the details of the proposed Labour budget and some if not most of the ideas have been nicked from Sinn Fein. Compare for yourselves

I'm curious. Why will you not vote Labour? And if not them, whom? Cheers.

ok what is the problem with Sinn Fein, why I would not like to see a Labour/Sinn Fein left government after the next election, but if that is what the people vote for then thats what we will end up.

The government will be decide after the next election, we could see a Labour/FF, Labour/FG or Labour/SF/Left, the thing at the moment it will be the Labour party deciding which other party will be in government after the next election

Actually in fairness it does seem to be that Labour will call the make up of next govt. Be warned however minorities in govts lately have been wiped out. Greens going out of business and PD's gone. Look what is happening to Nick Clegg in UK.He cant control the major issues and his support is dissapearing. Eamonn take note

So Fine Gael can't decide who's in government ?

Fair enough Labour, means my #2 will be going to independents or to the left alliance.

No preference for Labour (FF-Lite) or FG (Diet-FF).

Its all spin, in a PR system anything goes.

Being in Gov is all that matter to any of them. Pacts will be made anything you read or hear stating otherwise is complete tosh and designed to play down any negative feedback from the electorate.

The numbers will dictate

This is no big deal and is really just posturing. Watching FG and Labour impliment the FF/IMF deal will be hilarious.
