    No, there's no emigration in the North, the economy is booming, the housing market is stable, full employment, investors are flocking in.....
    We spend our days driving round Coney Island listening to Brian Kennedy eating jars of mussels and potted herrings.
    Thanks Sinn Fein.

    Except that this poll didn't ask about preferred coalition options, therefore you can't infer what you just did - otherwise, you could just as easily argue that the electorate's choice is a FF/SF/LAB/IND/ULA coalition. And it can't be both, can it?

    It shows where FG's focus is truly aimed.
    No it doesn't, it shows that some contributors to a discussion board are having a bit of a spat with some other posters on a discussion board.

    It really is weird how you see just about everything that anyone says on this site as reflecting something (invariably negative) about Fine Gael - you truly are obsessed.

    Well I don't think they targetted innocent civilians, if that's what you mean.

    FF/SF/LAB/ULA - that would be fun - from a distance.

    Sure why not, aren't FG and FF ideologically closer in every way than any of the other parties in the Dail, especially given that increasingly it appears that an FG/FF coalition is the electorate's preferred choice?

    It will be interesting to see - if the numbers fall as the trajectory of the polls indicate - how FG/FF will manage to conspire to frustrate the democratic will of the electorate.

    The numbers if they fall in the predicted way - given recent polls - may force them to coalesce, whether they like it or not.
    Numbers never force any coalition to happen. Anyway, by saying that FG and FF are ideologically closest to each other and should therefore form a coalition, you're assuming that voters vote based on ideology - but by and large, they don't. Irish voters are broadly centrist, and move between the main parties mainly in accordance with who they perceive to be competent at any given time.

    SInn Fein's IRA friends maimed/killed more Catholic males than they did all the 'Prods', 'Brits', 'Brit Civilians' and 'West Brits'.

    The GPO, Bolands Mill, St Stephens Green, were all civilian targets.

    They also targetted an unknown number of local Gurriers who were looting, and any civilian who stood in their way or acted a hero.
