So, the Green Party threw its toys out of the pram a few weeks back to try to grap the headlines and scale the high-moral ground by “demanding” an election in January. Next, Gormless likened this government to the in-mates of an asylum and further eroded any confidence the public could have in those ruling this country. In a functioning democracy such a bizarre outburst of self-pity and self-doubt would have denoted him unfit for any tax-funded office.
Now it seems they’re happy to be back in government and have a new set of legislation they want to enact, so effectively “normal service” has resumed and the promised election is moving swiftly back towards 2012 as the Jan date becomes Feb, then Mar….
Are the Green Party pulling yet another con-job on the people of Ireland, getting Opposition parties focussed on GE and not day-to-day opposition politics to help get budget passed and let them continue 'til 2012, or are they just the most ignorant, self-serving and ridiculous party that ever existed in Ieland?

You said it right there.

The Greens were a flash in the pan - cunningly exploited by FF who wiped the floor with them and ensured they can be thrown away like a used Kleenex.

Fianna Fail's nieve recycled toilet paper.

Apparently they're very absorbent for those days when one has particularly bad nasal congestion.

Unfortunately, they've served as nothing more than an eco-friendly mud flap for FF.

Why does this surprise anyone? Didn't they have a rotating leader system there a while back that had FF pulling their hair out in confusion and opposition parties in stitches.

why does Dan Boyle have such a say about our Government

He had not been elected to any position. In fact he was rejected by the people of Cork South Central last time out. Yet he gets to set Government Policy, some democracy we have here.

The Greens are totally out of their depth. Can you imagine the political capital they would have accrued if they had stayed out of government after the election? They would have been able to pose in a general election in, say, 2009 or earlier this year (as independents jumped ship and the government fell) as the true party of change, the real alternative. Their vote would have grown exponentially!!! And they know this. They must be kicking themselves. But they are so tainted now with everything that has happened that they are a rabbit dazzled by the headlights of the oncoming car: they haven't a clue as to what to do. They're screwed.

The Green Party is not ready for the reality of Irish politics and vice versa.
How could we wind up with a crazy bunch of lunatics in government? None of them appear to be sane.Ryan with a permanent smile on his face,White and Cuffe seem bewildered by the whole business,Trevor seems to have taken leave of absence and Gormley could not even exit government and the stupid clowns announced that we would have a january election.Talk about a piss up in a brewry!! The only thing to do now is to remove them all from office and make sure that they and twit boyle never see any kind of public office again.They have set the green agenda back a generation and the clowns dont even know it.

Wait until it is proven that CO2 doesn't cause climate change and history will judge them as the most pointless movement ever.

Yes they are and most surprisingly, they have succesfully conned their own party disciples!
The senior Green Scumm party members have simply being following whatever their FFer masters have been instructing them to do.

You only had to look at wingnut Gogarty's comments in the Dail as he voted in the most severest attack on the poorest in society with the budget etc

I don't know about that ,when people realise it's the sun that causes climate change (imagine that) the Greens will try and ban sunlight or tax it.

Is there any point in a Green Party?

When you see what they are willing to vote for when elected and compare that to their fine principles you really have to wonder.

I have every confidence in this TD....................... We support the budget.................... we support the Bank guarantee........................we support the enslavement bailout...................

I was wondering if the Green TDs have a problem with their fellow humans?

Yes absoluteley

I wonder how long it will take for the electorate or even their dim witted disciples to realise that their cult religion is really a greenwash version of Nazi Fascism

seriously, what does this even mean?

do you have any basis to think there is no link (other than the ramblings of mental anti-science creationist whackjobs) or are you just making it up?

you may as well be saying that you're going to wait until it's proven the earth is square before you will make no change in your personal already-indoctrinated political position was right all along

I think it's more fair to say that a good 50% of the Green Party representatives in the Oireachtas in 2007 were unfit for government.

Compared to the Greens' predecessors as small political partner to FF... the difference in policy implementation and general mental stability is remarkable.
