Which is but one of the reasons it won't happen. They would go in with FF, but only to stab them in the back the first serious chance they got, which is in its turn but one of the reasons why that won't happen either.I'm not so sure. In the 1950s a party very similar to what the Shinners are now, called Clann Na Phoblacta, went into coalition with Fine Gael even though they had an armed wing existing in Northern Ireland that carried out a string of attacks. Both parties are quite power hungry and united around what people on here often foolishly call "Cultural Marxism". If they did go into power with FG though it would see in the end of the Shinners in the Republic of Ireland.
