Ok, back on track with this brilliant thread.
In 1992 poor FG lost 10 seats, even though they were in opposition!
FF lost 9, but at least they were after serving in govt.
Labour were the big winners with the Spring tide.
FG were turning on their leader John Bruton but he got help.
FG were £1.3m in debt and couldn't keep the interest paid on their debt!
Along came Ml Lowry, as both Party Chairman & (wait for it), Director of FG Party Finances!
Lowry announced that the FG debt was down from £1.3m to £900,000 to save Bruton.
Bruton wanted a Rainbow govt, but it didn't include DL.
Instead he wanted FG, Labour & The P.D's!
Bruton wouldn't even talk to DL!
Was he right?
Another scenario arises,
How did ex FG Minister repay the FG debt?
