The Sindo's John Drennan reports that Eamon Ryan has said the Greens won't allow any "slippage" in their intention to have the General Election before yeh end of January.

Drennan's article says Fianna Fail and Fine Gael members were trying to delay the GE until March.

Ryan told Drennan that "the finance bill does not have to and won't take four months."

By the way, in a supplement in the Sindo entitled "Who's Who - Inspiring Hope in a Nation in Turmoil" Drennan lists Eamon Ryan as one of his symbols of hope.

"Tougher than he looks, and capable of inspiring hope in the people" Drennan writes.

"Possesses the rare quality of being able to inspire hope in the people. That may be a source of scorn to some, but surely we are not so fallen into the trough of the filter of Cowenism that even optimism is illegal now .... Ryan is far tougher than some of the more facile analysis suggests."

Now that the junta have sealed a deal with the IMF, this story is but an irrelevant sideshow.

I suspect the greens want it in January before voters see their first payslips in February.

Drennan is nothing more than the worst sort of ff shill.

Have offers nor been made to speed up the budgetary process in order to allow for a january election?

If the traitor party is trying to delay an election, it is down to them and nobody else.

It used to be the Toiseach who decided when the next election will be,. He really had no say in anything, The man who told Kenny he was not fit nor able, Cowen is a perfect example, Never judge the book by the cover.

It also lists Mary Harney, leader of the deregulation fetishists in government at the crucial moment, 'watchdog' blind-eye-turner to Ahern's finance explanations, now presiding over the triple-tiering of the health service. Enough said.

Hopefully Sinn Féin will force a confidence motion before the budget and force a GE, the IMF are here to save the banks of Europe not the Irish people.

Definitely should not take four months, all they will be doing is deleting section and increasing rates in existing legislation with the odd bit thrown in for good measure. They have known for months which bits needed new legislation and most is prepared or already passed to facilitate new measures.
