The Greens aren't left wing. They'll vote through the policies of any government they sit with.
The Greens are perhaps left of the Labour Party.

Every party votes through the policies of the Government they sit with. If Labour don't plan to vote for the policies of the Government they sit with then they shouldn't really be in that Government.

Senator Niall O Brolchain has tweeted about the prospect of a left alliance led by Eamon Gilmore, including Sinn Fein and the Greens.



What advice would you give him?
Think he should see a shrink----there will be no Greens to do business with anyone after the General Election.

Great contribution Senator! :roll:

Here are some other "perhapses" for you to play with:-

"The Greens are perhaps right of the Labour Party."

"The Greens are perhaps under the Labour Party."

"The Greens are perhaps above the Labour Party."

"The Greens are perhaps as dead as the dodo."

"The Greens are perhaps a busted flush"

"The Greens are perhaps over the cuckoo's nest."

Furthermore, surely you've something better to do than post tripe on the same p.ie site that you condemned in the Upstairs Ward of Mr. Gormley's Asylum, a few weeks ago?

How about bringing in an anti-fluoride Bill - legislation that Gormley has been promising us since before his hair went grey?

Or introduce a whistle-blowers charter - first promised back in the days when Roger Garland was a Green TD?

Get the finger out, Niall, before you vanish into the footnotes of Irish political history.

The Greens probably are to the left of Labour, but Eamon Gilmore isn't interested in a left-wing government. The Greens would be better off providing a constructive opposition in the next Dáil.

The Greens are perhaps clutching at straws.

Labour would not go into government under a corrupt Taoiseach and they would not blindly support a government just to stay in a job.
