Dancing aside , he seems alright.

The leaders may talk about national interest but they are ultimately about the party.

The Greens as junior partners with FF/SF is lose/lose for them.

Ryan only wants to be in government with anyone.

In that scenario do you see the Greens carrying the can for unpopular policy?

Surely Eamon Ryan has learnt the lessons of their last spell in government.

I'm sure some folk will find a way to blame the bad stuff on SF and give FF credit for anything that goes well.

The Greens are like a daft uncle - popular because he's thought to be relatively harmless but you couldn't trust him alone in the house for fear of what he might do unsupervised.

And much and all that the Greens don't want another roadway built in this country - very convenient that they're practically all within the Pale which has been made the transport infrastructure hub for this state - it should be a non-runner as far as rebalancing the state and not having the preponderance of jobs and ever longer commutes on the east coast.

Couldn't be any worse than the current Charlie who wanted a state commemoration for the Black and Tans, Auxies, and RIC

It's a possibility but I don't think the Greens would go for it to be honest. I don't think they'd like to be seen as the ones continuing with FFG in government given the votes of the people. But you never know.

So the leadership of the Provisional IRA would be in a position to have access to national security intelligence in the ROI?

And the names of all the touts in the PIRA.

Poor Jerry.

It could cost them all their seats.

They lack the cold hard cynicism of the likes of SF/IRA.
