Irish Politics


#4565

Will FF take their seats in Westminster?


#4566

If they win any MM said they will and he seems to be able to ignore convention like he did on abortion. With the corruption the DUP get away with and how the fill their pockets you can see the attraction to FF to get their slice


#4567

Definition of irony right there. Asking if FF will take seats in an assembly that SF hasn’t sat in for two years…


#4568

last i checked Leinster house is up north - so why would they keep the same policy ?


#4569

And I’m sure you will support FF teaming up to The DUP despite all the corruption that has been shown since SF left stormont. The 2 most corrupt parties in western Europe over the last 30 years, maybe its what the North deserve after inventing puke football


#4570

I’d support FF disbanding and not much else.


#4571

Looking forward to seeing a Fianna Fail / Stoop candidate in some hall in Crossmaglen, Creggan or Andersonstown being asked by an audience member if she / he would describe Bobby Sands as a Freedom fighter or a terrorist.


#4572

Put them up against a wall.


#4573

So no progress then …


#4574

Fianna Fail arriving in the six counties several decades late can have nothing to do with progress.


#4575

I would hope to have the opportunity to ask that if they should knock on my door.


#4576

#4577

Nor can your town hall scenario.


#4578

The double Irish is gone as an option for anyone who hadn’t availed of it before 2016 and is being phased out by 2020 for the likes of Apple and Google who use it. This was done by FG in case you were wondering


#4579

Ah Maxi, it doesn’t really matter. Does it?


#4580

You are giving out about something that is now gone. Do you think FG deserve any credit for removing it?


#4581

I knew that the double Irish was gone. They were publicly shamed into removing it. Leo said this week that vulture funds are grand altogether and that the housing situation is settling down. Murphy is in hiding. I’d find it difficult to praise them, in all honesty.


#4582

not asking for praise about their general governance, lots of which I wouldn’t agree with but this is something that they have gotten rid of


#4583

Can I ask was that serious pressure from EU particularly France and Germany that gave Fine Gael the incentive to get rid of it? Genuine question


#4584

The EU certainly would have been putting pressure on Ireland to remove it so it definitely played a large part in removing it.
