We could argue about this one all day... .... I would never all anyone stupid....Ummm Ruairi Quinn, Brendan Howlin, Jan O'Sullivan, Michael D Higgins, Joan Burton, Liz McManus, Willie Penrose etc all have brains, Shannon you may not like them as they are of a different political persuasion however please don't suggest that these people are not intelligent!
If Kenny could acknowledge his shortcomings and said that he would remain as leader of FG but not seek the office of Taoiseach it would improve the party's position at the polls. I don't think Noonan is the man for the job though. Even at his peak his judgement was exposed as woefully flawed during the McCole scandal and he's well below his peak now.Noonan to be elected compromise Taoiseach following GE, Kenny would not cut it on the international stage, Gilmore will not have enough seats to be majority party
It is not your fault, right wingers are intrinsically mean, it is the sole basis of their ideology. Of course, they try and appear nice with things like the socially liberal PDs, social democratic FG, but in their heart of hearts they know they are just a big bag of meanies.(nice crisps BTW)I'm sorry, I didn't really mean it but the temptation was too great:lol:
Well aware of that. They were the only pros I could think of and look how bad they are. You're quite right tho. Gilmore no pros, all consSorry, I've got to take issue with the first two of those. Nothing I've heard from Gilmore offers me hope, as all he does is attack the government (certainly worth doing), but never outlines what Labour would do. As for toughness of personality, he still can't decide if he supports the Croke Park Agreement, 6 months after it was ratified, so I don't think he has the ability to lead if he can't even make simple decisions like that for fear of offending someone.
