The EU Parliament group to which Fianna Fail belong, ECR, are calling for military action against Slovenia over a fishing dispute as well as a ban on the construction of new mosques. The group are also opposing the ratification of the Istanbul convention on Domestic Violence.

Many FF TD's gave commitments to oppose the 8th Amendment in the general election almost 2 years ago. The party has been noticeably quiet about what may happen when the legislation comes before the Dail in relation to the repeal referendum.

Is this a genuine reflection of how FF members feel or do they feel embarrassed that they are in an EU parliamentary group of headbangers or has Brian Crowley much space left on his rump after all the splinters from his fence sitting?

And to think this crowd are within spitting distance of getting into power here!

Don't you need MEPs to be in a group in the EU Parliament?

Ruža Tomašić wrote on her website on Thursday that Croatian “police, and even the army if necessary, should react” to plans by Slovenia to fine Croatian fisherman operating in disputed waters, adding that the dispute should be “handled with force” because of the precedent set by Slovenia
She's got to be coddin'.

So FF are still both ALDE and ERC? Taking talking out of both sides of the mouth to new levels in Europe! How can you lose a whip when you are the only party member in the parliament?
the party whip, ie support from the party

warplanes at Shannon was oh so popular with the irish public that they wanted to keep it all a secret.
