Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are both angling for one party government next time out according to the Oirish Toimes.

It's hard to imagine a more deluded piece than this steaming pile of poo.

I checked, and it's not April 1st.

This 'reporter' seems to believe this ridiculous nonsense.

Put together, as a bloc, these right wing parties barely manage 50%. Indvidually, they haven't a hope of government without the support, tacit or otherwise, of the other.

This is an article that should be reposted after the next election.

I'm no fan of FG by any means but I'd rather see them continue on than FF. Do people considering voting FF not remember the dying days of the Cowen government? We have by any objective standard, come a long way since then.

That's quite a stretch. They luv the leftie Labour and Greens. It's just ye guys they hate.

It's not a Tory rag (though it's a rag alright :lol:).

Spoiler for every thread bitching about an article ever; if there’s no quote, it’s made up.

The next Dáil will have 160 seats, which will fall to 159 voting TDs with the election of a ceann comhairle. If, for example, Fianna Fáil returned with 58 seats and Fine Gael 55, Martin could form a minority government on his own if Fine Gael supported him in a confidence-and-supply deal.

The more likely scenario, however, is that both will seek to build post-election alliances to get them as near a pure majority of 80 seats as possible.
Which part of the above is inaccurate?

Ridiculous strawman from a ridiculous poster.

What part of the OP is inaccurate, Tory Girl?

You have to have a fairly warped sense of perspective to think FF is a right wing party. It's also quite clear from the article that they are talking about minority governments with supply/confidence arrangements as per now. Do better next time.

Irish people have incredibly short memories when it comes to support for political parties. It's because most Irish people don't actually have an interest in politics, I think. Overtime I see mayor Quimby make an appearance on The Simpsons I'm reminded of Irish politicians and how easy it is for them to con the Irish people. You only have to look at the Irish reaction to FF. That party ruins the country, Irish people are outraged and within a few years FF support is way back up again. No logic to it at all
