FFers are simply wasting their time replying on threads like these as the ABFF's dont want to listen to any replies, let alone any that might be reasoned or objective.There have been a few answers to the question along these lines. An understandable response depending on one's point of view but clearly not what the party actually stands for but rather a description of the behaviour of some of its elected officials and their buddies.
In fact it is clear from the lack of clear responses from FFers that they don't stand for anything much except some superficial notion of 'Irishness' without any details of what it means. It really is time for the ideological meaning of FF (and the other parties) to be debated in public and beyond the narrow realm of Internet message boards. Anyone got any idea on how this can get kick-started?
There are many excellent posters on this site from many varying backgrounds and allegiances who can show some respect for each others differences and points of views, but sadly the majority of the posters are simply here to attack, insult and score bragging points.
Its been said on other threads, but the more vitriolic the attacks on FF, the more its unsure or wavering supporters will close ranks and will in fact begin to re-galvanise it support base.
