Everyone assumes Fianna Fail would only ever be one of TWO parties in a coalition. If you lose as many as 20 seats, as some would argue you will, and Labour can't make up the numbers (should they be so inclined), what third party would you turn to?

One could argue there were more than two partners in the '97 - '02 coalition. Either way I can't see the party loosing 20 plus seats AND forming a government. Anything less than a 20-seat loss and the Labour party should be able to do the business, particularly if the coalition dips in to the FF gene pool.

FF are well past their sell by date. The only thing they are capable of leading is a frenzied headlong dash to get their snouts in the trough.

If you are only capable of simplistic name calling, rather than engaging in the debate, just get off the website.

Yep the only way it could happen is if there was a massive rise in the number of independents, which would look unlikely in the current circumstances. If it did actually occur, my personal preference would be the greens. But as Max said, its very unlikely.

Great! We've got wafflers like Dempsey, the Wicklow Windbag, Trickey Mickey (the guy who doesn't read his briefs), Biffo, who'll yawn you into submission! Vote F?

Wouldn't Independents make up the rest? If FF fell to 58-62, Labour get 20-24, then a couple of Indos would be enough.

The Shinners are gearing up for a phone call after the big day.
They have a dissident outfit that has already broken away because Jerry has agreed to join with the second wealthiest party(FF) in the state.
Dont expect either of the new coalition to lower your taxes though-unless your a very fat cat.!
Cute Hoor,What do you think of my web article on the Morris Tribunal.?

The signs are that FG and Labour are ging to lose bigtime at the next election.
This leaves the back door open for FF to reclaim the seats lost at the last election.
If things go to plan, FF will be the largest party after the election with the unenviable task of finding a coalition partner.
I think SF and some high profile independents would be prepared to broker a deal to govern this country back to full economic health.

The arrogance of the f-failures on these old threads..."Yea.. well if it dosen't work out with Labour, we can have the Greens". That's what 15 years uninterrupted power does.

A FF / SF / ULA / SP / Greens / Indos should just about so it :)

Now that would be a stable Government

Clare Daly might be a good coalition partner for FF. She has form acting as a mudguard for dodgy builders.

One small point, why would any party or group form a coalition with a party of completely useless tools, unless of course, they have a death wish

The signs are that you are a spoofer who has little to be doing other than resurrecting nonsense threads that are over 6 years old.

Even for you the above makes no sense. First off, no one above says "Yea.. well if it dosen't work out with Labour, we can have the Greens". One poster stated that is the OP scenario were to come to pass (as it did) that their personal preference would be the Green party, and guess what, that's exactly what happened. Also, "15 years of uninterrupted power"??? The above posts you're referencing is from 2006, 9 years after Fianna Fáil took office after the 1997 election. Flav, I worry for you at times!

Most people hope and pray that the thieving cnuts are gone from government forever.

What part of "Fianna Fail deliberately, and with malice aforethought, bankrupted the Country in order to line their own pockets and the pockets of their investors" do you think we have forgotten?




If you lose as many as 20 seats, as some would argue you will,
Given that you only have 19 seats, that would be an excellent result (for the generations of Irish people who haven't been born yet)




and Labour Amateur FF can't make up the numbers (should they be so inclined),

Hopefully the next election will see the wannabees go the same way as their kleptocratic heroes in full flavour FF.

One thing about your post gives me hope for the future and that is the fact that opinions like yours count for nowt in the real world.

In the real world, the people are fed up with the cuts being dictated to FG/Lab from the Troika.

Free travel for pensioners is a sacret cow in this country and should not be even considered tobe cut.

It only costs the government €75 million / annum.

Earnest Blythe took a shilling of the old age pension over 70 years ago - if the blueshirts attempt to take anything more of the pensioners they will never have their arses in a ministrrial Mercedes again.
