The Belfast/Good Friday Agreement is an international agreement signed by the UK with this former colony to draw a line under centuries of colonial rule.You are trolling now.
I doubt it will be a primary issue.FG love of the black and tans will also cost them. Many ordinary people were disgusted.
Added to the housing issue is that FG have backed the cowboy builders by not changing our laws to stop them building apartments with defects and then when the defects come to light the statute of limitations has passed, the company dissolved and the developer walks off with all the money. Happened two people I know. I voted FG last time but now they are scum.
Again, just repeating yourself isn't making your argument less stooopid, its just trolling.The Belfast/Good Friday Agreement is an international agreement signed by the UK with this former colony to draw a line under centuries of colonial rule.
Together with the visit of the Queen the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement was a fundamental statement of goodwill by both sides to end a centuries long conflict.
It involved changes to the Irish constitution and was approved by a massive majority in both parts of Ireland.
Refighting the war of independence is damaging the world class conciliation agreement we voted for and is indefensible.
I think its another gaffe that showed how totally put of touch they are,with a sprinkling of snarky minister.I doubt it will be a primary issue.
It will be 5 weeks in the past by polling day and the people who care about it were always unlikely to vote Fine Gael.
Maybe as a secondary issue contributing to a feeling that the Govenment weren't fully in control in the last couple of months, it may have a small impact.
A debate between the leader of Ffg, Varadkar, and his deputy M.Martin, is silly too.The black and tan issue is hypocrisy at its lowest.
The Belfast/Good Friday Agreement was a world class effort at reconciliation and drew a line under centuries of colonial rule.
The Brexiteers in the UK tried to tear it up but the government and the EU stopped it so far.
Making an issue of the war of independence is totally contrary to the reconciliation we signed up to in massive numbers on this island when we backed the B/GFA.
True, but FG have not changed the law to get them. SF, the greens and some other parties have laid down motions. FG and FF back the builders.
How mant apartments has being built with defects since FG came in to power in 011, most of the apartments and houses was built when FF was in power not FG
Refusing to debate the relevance of the most important agreement signed by the UK and Ireland drawing a line under centuries of colonial rule is not good.Again, just repeating yourself isn't making your argument less stooopid, its just trolling.
Kenny was still at the helm in 2011 when FG took a kicking.Varadkar is increasingly seen as out of touch by the public, especially the public outside Dublin. If that was reflected in Fine Gael dropping a decent number of seats,
There a far higher chance of Renua winning an overall majority than of FG even thinking its leader to satisfy a few micro parties.it could be a path that allowed smaller parties to still form a government with them. In Coveney and Donohoe, FG have two senior politicians who don't suffer from that image problem, even if Coveney is from an even more privileged background than Varadkar.
Admittedly for it to happen, it would rely on Fianna Fáil also losing seats and whatever about Fine Gael, there's no polling or anything else to suggest that.
The larger parties can endure longer than the rest. The Inds and micro parties have fewer resources, financial and human, so they just can't keep up campaign after campaign. And when they shed seats it's the larger parties that pick them up.I get the point about the cost for smaller parties and Independents, but against that, would the larger parties want to go into another election if they had lost seats?
Indeed, and that's why I'd love to see a series of elections in a short period because it would cut away a lot of the deadwood.There has been a lot of posing because FF were doing the dirty work for them. The mechanics of elections is usually to borrow campaign funds and pay the loan back from Dail salary and expenses so until that's done there is a real incentive to avoid another election.
Sue the engineers who signed off on the report at purchase time if they failed to inform you of a defect.Added to the housing issue is that FG have backed the cowboy builders by not changing our laws to stop them building apartments with defects and then when the defects come to light the statute of limitations has passed, the company dissolved and the developer walks off with all the money.

I do not own any ministed.Your ministed floated this shitshow, take it up with him.
