Well it's the way we vote and have always voted. It is our nature. No parties on the fringes with the exception of the PDs have ever convinced us that they are worth a long term punt. This is why larger parties attempt to sit full square across the centre and why B Ahern became a socialist. Most voters do not connect with political processes until we get into the final stages of an election, by which time messages have been well and truly massaged to get votes.And how has that worked out for us? By which I mean the voters not the parties.
