The next Government

Who will form the next government


  • Total voters
    56
  • Poll closed .
Tuesdays motion will be all about roaring and shouting across the floor for social media likes, Sf will say govt are failing to keep communities safe from criminals ,
Govt will hit back, carthy and doherty abusing the guard years ago will get a mention,
It will be the usual script.
SF propose the motion.
Government defend the motion.

SF mention keeping people safe, resourcing our AGS and making sure they can carry out their duties safely.
FGer mentions something about the RA.
Ensuing shouting and insults.
Ceann Comhairle throws a few out.

Motion defeated by about 15-20.

The motion itself is perfectly valid - she is a solid TD I'd say but not able to handle a ministry like Justice. But on the day that will be irrelevant, it'll be a performance exercise by all sides.

They should have waited imo.

Two weeks before Xmas , it will barely register with people busy with xmas plans
 
Failing SF is down again in the Opinion Polls this weekend.
Its leader is now down to third in the most popular party leader position behind Leo Varadkar.

At 12% behind FF & FG it looks like they’re going to need some sort of coalition arrangement with one or other of FF or FG if they want to get into Government. This will then infuriate many of their newly found supporters who see SF as an alternative to FF & FG.

28% of the electorate believe that we have too much immigration. Interestingly, this number rises to 36% of SF supporters.

Two right idiots on rte radio, peter Burke and donnchadh o laoighre, O laoighre was asked by justin mccarthy if in govt would sf remove drew harris,? he said as of now his position is untenable but maybe in future with improvements sf position may change,
Burke said if you google sf and murder you get plenty of info,
Justin mccarthy told him he was out of order,

It makes for good media but it is getting formulaic and performative. The trick with it is that it absolves all sides from actual substantive debate on any issue.

We need change.
The RA.

Way easier than discussing waiting lists or infrastructural decline or disability services or housing.
 
I wouldn’t like a scenario where the Garda commissioner could be fired for political reasons. There should be total independence in the appointment and firing of Garda Commissioners.
Agreed but there's an argument to be made that his appointment was political. Tis what it is now, to your point, SF removing him would backfire for that very reason, but to do it they'd need to be in government and they won't be.
