Sinn Fein are not a Normal Political Party ??

This whole “appetite for change” horseshit is like “make America great again,” in terms of a stupid meaningless slogan.

We have elections every five years precisely because we need change.
Yea but there is an appetite for change.
That's where the 31 to 35 is coming from.
But it doesn't mean that the change that's wanted is SF rather that they are the only viable opposition party of a size to effect change.

FG FF based on Red C on 39% getting 79 seats is essentially based on an the pre election pact which will see massive transfers between them.

But the fact it's 39 combined or B&A maybe 43/44 shows that their combined vote is still declining.

Our politics as I have often posted needs a new party for ages.

If both FF and FG agree on a pact before the next election then we will have something we never had on this country before, with people voting firstly for their traditional party and then once those candidates are selected, following them up with the other party's candidates which has probably never occured before.

So it could be quite interesting in the end
 
And the other dinosaur has spoken, I can see his point though :

He added: "Let's be in no doubt, given the gravity of the allegations about Sinn Fein being in cahoots with major international crime gangs, this matter cannot be swept under the carpet.

"We all have a right to know whether gangland money is being used to influence politics, and there must be full transparency.

"We will not be deflected from pursuing this but will always seek to shine a light on the murky underbelly of republicanism."


eww, now I can't get the thought of Mary Lurleen's murky underbelly out of my head...
 
MLMD a bit spikey wih Mark Carruthers when he put some hard questions to her, She was similar months ago with Ciara Kelly,
The caring, calm manner tends to slip when pushed,

She is withering under serious allegations and gets very agitated when challenged.

Mary Lou McDonald talks about there being “combatants” on each side.

She doesn’t mention the innocent people, who were anything but combatants, mown down by IRA guns and blown to bits by IRA bombs.

Mary Lou, said that the re was no comparison between gangland murders & drugs and IRA murders & drugs, could you explain the IRA Army Council's deal with FARC cocaine narco-terrorists in Colombia ?
