There are no major policy differences between Fine Gael and Fianna Fail. Fine Gael just have different names for Fianna Fail policies. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!:mad:

Ah health policy.
FF-Do nothing.
FG-Copy the Dutch.

Economics.
FF-Do nothing.
FG-€11 billion stimulus plan in the IT and energy industry.

Society.
FF-Get those dam blasphemers.
FG-Catch pedophiles.

Public sector.
FF-Tax and cut services.
FG-Privatise some things and cut taxes.

Education.
FF-Raise prices, reduce services.
FG-Again, privatise some stuff. Shift new resources to some vital areas.

And then there is autism and rape victims. There is a lot of differences. I read.

Stop this absolute rubbish that there are no differences between party policies.

Fine Gael publish new policies at a ridiculous rate. If you take the effort to actually visit their website you will see that they have many many alternatives to Fianna Fáil and the notion that the parties are similar is an absolute joke put about by FF hacks like DS-09 who want to talk down any alternative to their gombeenism, corruption and gross incompetance.

www.finegael.org - home - look at the website and inform yourselves before making idiotic posts.

In a very basic, quick way.

Health:
FF - Two tier system
FG - National Health Insurance

Third Level Education:
FF - Fees
FG - Graduate Tax

Economics:
FF - Increase Taxes, try not to let state go bankrupt, hope that when Obama sorts it out in the US Ireland's economy will recover.
FG - Cut Spending, Lower VAT, €11 billion stimulus plan in the IT and energy industry.

Public Sector
FF - Cut vital services, but make sure not to annoy the Unions.
FG - Massively reform the area, Maintain vital services.

They are the most obvious differences anyway.

In key core issues there are very few similarities between the parties. I can’t think of any major differences in Justice, although there are smaller differences.

So in political terms Fg would be to the right of FF

Honestly I don't think FF are really anyway, so therefore it's impossible to be to the right or left of them.
