It's the only viable Government.. If they fail too make this Government, FG will get wiped out in any recalled election.. unless, they change leadership..

What about SF/FG, the two so called "republican" party.
In both cases it would be the end of FF!
Unless FF gets the prime minister, which is possible, in exchange for Enda president.

ff/fg is the natural coalition and they both have set out their manifestos so they can easily agree a program and a budget.
Fg won't change enda
The changes will only come if this experiment fails .

I don't like the idea of the two parties joining forces like that.

The two parties are far too similar in their conservatism and on the surface you'd think it would be good to have them come together. However, they offer no real change and it is what we need, a proper change.

A proper and realistic approach to sorting the problems facing this country and listening to the people who voted them into power.

TDs work for us and it would do them good to remember that.

They seem to not have listened to the people and offer lies and platitudes. I'd much prefer it if theygave us the uncomfortable truth and said something along the lines of "ok, this is what we have, we cannot afford to give you all you are asking for, here is what we think the best thing to do is to focus on priorities. They are ...., ...., and .....

Fianna Fail and Fine Gael are too comfortable with their own standard practices of offering bland lies and platitudes. I like to look at their track record. Have they done good work? Sometimes. Sometimes their decisions led to the wrecking of the economy even more than what you would expect from the worldwide recession.

No, their joining forces, for me, would be a bad idea.

But change is not what people, in their majority, voted for.
If people had given 30% to SF and 20 to AAA-PBP and 10 to Labor, then you could say they want change. People like change, you think?

People want change but the problem is a lot of people just don't vote

So they do not want change! That is the problem then. They want others to decide what is it that they want. They have what they want!

They do want change and don't want to see FF or FG in power but fail to understand the importance of voting.

They do not exist if they do not vote. In belgium we had mandatory voting for a reason.

People who voted did not vote for change.
So what do you want?
A dictator that tells us what people who do not vote want? No one can tell what people who do not vote want. They are irrelevant. They would not mind a dictatorship: they would never hear about voting again.

They are lazy, dangerous and irrelevant. They understand voting. And if they do not then they are very very stupid and thick and Incannot trust them to have an opinion of their own.

Majority voted in a way that will make a change for the worst. It is a pity but it shows people get what they deserve.

The dominant theme of the election is a polarised society along working/middle class and urban rural lines. If your a middle class social liberal you vote Labour, SD or Green. If your a trickle down high roller you vote FG. If your rural poor you vote SF.

Far too much of a cliche.

Sorry but this is the truth though FF still lured some working class voters by pretending to be on the Left. By cutting taxes mainly for rich people while paying for it with regressive taxes and charges, FG have reinforced class consciousness and frightened off low income voters. Another election wont get those voters back.
