It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo.

Well I think it is actually a fair question. It as a party has lost many of its core activists, is seen as aloof and distant if not hostile in many ways to its support base.No, it was in government three days ago and is within 70 seats of an overall majority. Hardly? Why are you even asking?
You know, I am in almost full agreement with the latter part of your post. Happily for both of us for entirely different reasons.It'll rebound, stronger than ever and more left wing hopefully.
Well FG are doing well now, but they are going to come to power in an incredibly unfortunate time.I love these threads, which always crop up, days after an election defeat. Give it a couple of years and they seem so ironic. Blair marked the death of the conservatives, the defeat of Gore marked the end of the Democrats and but a few years ago, Fine Gael were a spiral to non existence. Ironic.
Not unless the Libs join him, and for that Lab and the Libs would be severely punished.Not a chance Milliband will be in charge and when the current coalition falls apart he may be able to pull the necessary votes in to tip the balance.
And don't forget the "Obama's win means the end for the Republicans" and the "Republican successes mean the end of Obama" stuff.I love these threads, which always crop up, days after an election defeat. Give it a couple of years and they seem so ironic. Blair marked the death of the conservatives, the defeat of Gore marked the end of the Democrats and but a few years ago, Fine Gael were a spiral to non existence. Ironic.
Yup. You'd think people would learn. Even the Libs have survived, though they were down to what - ~9 seats about 30 years ago?These sort of ridiculous threads seem to come around like showers. The truth is that in politics is a rollercoaster - you go up and down all the time. The Tories will be down, and up. Labour will be down and up. Fianna Fáil will be down and up. Fine Gael will be down and up. That is the circle of politics.
Yep - they will gain a lot of brownie points if they are sensible and don't go into self-destruct modeMust be nice for them to be in opposition without the LibDems competing for what passes for the "progressive" vote, with the incumbent govt forced to implement savage cutbacks with no end in sight.
A nice rest.
