Flirtatious, middle-aged businesswoman regrets her brief dalliance with a balding sexy economist who has since moved on to a wealthier widow. Has the time now come for Tintáwn O'Fool to take on the chain of office?
Ms Lynch did the State some service in warning us of Gallagher's associations.

Perhaps you have done as much? Or even more?

The combination of losing their 'chair' and 'gaining' O'Toole should deliver the final coup de grace. Another busy day in the Irish left's never-ending march to victory.

Jebus Crispy.

Maybe you could tell us which party you honour with your vote?

No?

Deffo.

While FF and FG are unified by their vapid venality?

Yep.
That's it, I'd say.

Down with the lefty splitters.

Long live the united (corrupt) right.

And what in the name of The Great Moron of Leitrim (are you perchance related?) has that got to do with her following Baldy Donnelly out of the Soc Dem Party a full six years later?

Please feel free to use crayons and a pointy stick to explain your answer.

perhaps but she should have had the decency to admit she was a labour party operative ( at the time )

And as to her service to the State? And (diminuendo) as to yours?

Take your time but I expect your reply to my second enquiry will not delay you long?

He's not an economist.

The left tend to pee on their chips . They have awful problems showing a united front .

The 'right' do a fair amount of splitting and defecting too!

So the WhoDem's are not the great new party to sweep the nation and come save us all?

There's only one thing more fantastical than FF budgets and that's the Irish voters fantasy that some magical party will arise to cure all their ills and sweep us all off our feet into the sunset. Perhaps a hack can now write yet another article on how the soccies didn't work out and we need yet another panacea party to which they'll do nothing to make it happen.

The answer to your first ejaculation of whimsy is that whether or not Ms. Lynch 'served the state' by being planted in a television audience to ask a question of one of the candidates the answer to which was already known to virtually every viewer is moot. (That you may not have been aware of it before Glenna asked it, serves only to highlight your previously mentioned close kinship with The Great Moron of Mohill).

As for my 35-odd years of loyal service to the State: this was recognised a while ago when a payable order for a six figure sum dropped into my letterbox courtesy of the Paymaster General. Unfortunately, the Official Secrets Act prevents me from giving you full details of my many and varied contributions to the State and to the people of Ireland over many years.

So, you'll just have to take my word for it. Or not, as you wish. I don't really care.

True dat....although I like the two TD's they have, it's oft times just too hard work building a party from the ground to the point of relevance....MAYBE that's part of the reason why Stephen Donnelly bought a plane off the shelf rather than go to the bother of an airfix model.....still don't forgive him though....
You're right though....there's a glut of populist opinion that "we need a new party" when there's an absolute glut of choice out there as it is....the only ones who can't seem to get off the ground in any shape or form here are the frothing racist headbangers who rail about immigration and open borders and fantasize abut attacks in Ireland which haven't happened.....
There's probably a reason for that....
Maybe we need the socialist movement to stop making up silly cover names for their "mass movements" because they're so proud of their socialism that they don't have the courage to campaign with the word in the ballot papers....
It all sounds so easy for the armchair fantasists to express a desire for a "new party" and then when some innocent decides to take up the mantle they discover there's a whole lot of grunt work associated with it they just assumed somebody else would do.....
I recall when our own movement was in its infancy up here....all the bloody ticket selling, leaflet dropping, fund raising tedium, getting genuinely involved in day to day boredom that is REAL politics...working on the electoral registers, getting people on the voters roll...that's the reality....the headbangers think that from nowhere people are going to see a messiah like Brian from "the life of" who gets up on the plinth to escape the Romans, gets magically elected in a storm of popular acclaim and announce sweeping tax cuts in the Dail or overnight fixes to the health service, waiting lists and homelessness.....
Real life is more gritty than that, fairy godmother people......
Mind you, we were ONE of the success stories.....:D

And here am I thinking that Sinn Féin are the answers to everyones prayers, the saviours of Ireland.

See ticketyboo's reply above, it takes time and effort to build, yet another reason why a panacea party is nothing more than the voting public's fantasy egged on by tired hacks no matter how well intentioned.
