Looks like it's only a matter of time before SF are part of a coalition government. Like the recent referenda its looks like Ireland is willing to move on from it's past. Unfortunately we'll have dinosaurs who would prefer to live in the past.

It's great to be living in this new modern Ireland.
 
If in govt as a junior partner will SF stick to their word by keeping a rein on senior partners or will they get a taste of the good life and abandon principles? There was talk recently that if in govt SF would allow certain stuff to pass in return for a certain date on a border poll.

How do the Irish government get a certain date for a border poll in N Ireland?

Leo - "Hi Arlene - you might organise an old poll there on such a date."

Arlene - "piss off Leo"

Like all political parties they will most likely abandon their principles.

They'll be in tough position. Stick by majority partner in tough times and the electorate will kill them for it. Walk away on back of early crisis and it'll be "sure we told you they wouldn't have the stomach for it".

Not like in Stormont when Mama London will splash the cash to calm troubled waters to maintain a quiet life.
 
Get them in to government and used to some power and making hard decisions for a change.


It will end their endless bleating from the side lines about simple solutions to complex problems.


Governing is a lot harder than opposition.



But better food, opportunities for travel and expenses as they must be sick to death of going to Cuba, Palestine and Venezuela meeting failed revolutionary crackpots
