RTE1 lunchtime news reported that Enda Kenny had requested a meeting with the Taoiseach, Central Bank, etc, prior to any recapitalisation of the banks.

The story was on the full-news-index on rte.ie soon after.

Its not there now - stories normally hang in there all day...

One thing is clear.

Our print media has a very tenuos committment to democracy.

All this nonsense about the opposition having a duty to support the government. That is dangerous nonsense.

The role of the opposition is to act as a check on the excesses of government and to provide an alternative.

The idea that they shoud support the innumerate ramblings of Fr Jack Cowen is laughable.

Interesting, I wonder is there a whistle blower loose in the banks?

I don't believe anyone suggested that they have "a duty to support the government".

The issue is their preference for Grandstanding, Misrepresentation and Innuendo when they would be better spending their (taxpayer funded) time making positive contributions to the process - such AS providing alternatives.

Lets be having some alternatives - for a change.

Lady Wickla was on the six-one News telling us the Insulation scheme was too little, too late.

So if they're so useless, why were those two main opposition parties YOUR party's first choice as coalition partners right up to Election 2007?

Probably the same reason as FG & Labour wanted the Greens to form a govt. with them. Anyway, the 2007 election is as relevant to our present situation as the 1916 Rising.

Your ability to come up with totally nonsensical questions never ceases to amaze. :roll:

They do that all the time. Just go on to either party’s websites and you will find loads of difference ideas from FG and Labour.

However on the other hand the government excludes them at every chance possible and curtails the chances they have to make positive contributions by cutting time in the Dail, rushing though legislation etc.

They curtail the chances they have to talk boIIocks. Whenever they have positive contributions they are welcomed.

Sadly, your inability to ever address points made to you no longer amazes anybody. Furthermore, given your behaviour on this site in recent weeks, its astonishing you're still showing your face round here.

If the mockery that FF has made of the Dail wasn't so serious, your naivety would be funny.

Sadly for that reason it isn’t. FF don’t care what anyone else thinks, well at least not other people elected by the people.

And it happens all over again.
