Best to send some officials round and wake him up!

Looks like the Examiner will be going into examinership. I hope it survives. It's a fine newspaper.

of course there is no truth in this. And to think this clown was in gov. and along with his party brought in a swathe of nonsensical taxes and of course gave us NAMA in return for saving a few Stags.

And we thought Dan Boyle's tweets were moronic.

It's galling to think of the damage the greens have done to this country.

I wouldn't say I'd miss it. Read it once and wasn't overly impressed and they charge nearly €2 like their broadsheet counterparts The Irish Independent and The Irish Times...pure rip off. Read somewhere that The Examiner has had a massive drop off in sales post Celtic Tiger.

I wonder what party enabled them to go into a coalition government.

What's galling is the knowledge that the damage they'd do was widely predicted, in some detail. even here on P.ie before they ever doffed the knickers of their supposed principles in slavering anticipation of the joy that being reamed by FF would bring them in terms of money, power and pensions.

Aye, the Civil Partnership Bill, the 2010 Planning Act, a movement away from heavy car polluters, investment in recycling, organic farming, investing in wind power, pushing Willie out ... WTF were they thinking odlum ;)

Which prediction was that? The one where Green politicians were going on about unsustainable planning and brown envelopes?

I respect the Greens for bringing down the last government. They may have been b1tchslapped in cabinet but that's what is to be expected from being the junior coalition partner.

The one(s) where FF would use them as a mudguard and vote-fodder for continued corrupt activities and abuse of governmental power to the detriment of the country. Do a search on some of the threads from the relevant periods - it was all there, frequently in debates between Green Party members about soul-selling &c.

Had the Green Party gone into coalition with FG, would it have been any different judging by FG performance to date?

The green party pulling out of government with their silly little hissy fit was the worst part. Had Fianna Fáil stayed in things would be a lot better now. Remember who started the recovery the greens wanted to torpedo all for the selfish, gombeen seats they wanted to protect. It should be Micheál in Europe, a real tough cop negotiator - not Enda.

At least the situation looks like being better for the next election and not for the squatters on the government benches.
