Where were those parties policies on regulating the banks three years ago? Before the legion of Shinner trolls jump in here, what about those recent educational spending cuts in the North, liars, liars. The opposition needs a dose of reality. It is hard decisions we need now not popularism

    The Fianna Fáil orgy on Politics.ie continues, this website is covered with Fianna Fáil threads! I don't think many of the members of the website could survive without FF. Where else would they direct their vitriol?

    The vitriol seems to be because of a FF orgy, even though we all partied.

    But FF were in charge, they ran the ship onto the rocks, and then tried to deny we were sinking.

    The FF brand name is ffinished.

    but it was a FF poster who started the thread.

    Maybe fearing your being forgot about.

    FG/Labour, the shinners, Wallace, environmentalists, the list is endless. Facts are facts, FF let the Banks behave recklessly, based our economy on an unsustainable property boom and blew the proceeds of the tax income from the boom on buying votes. Now that we're up sh1t creek without a paddle, we're hardly likely to forget the ones who broke the paddle.

    Sorry, but look at the Bagman Gallagher and amount of votes he got. The Irish electorate seem to have dangerously short memories...They were just on the verge of launching another FFailure into a position of power. (If the Bagman had got in, most probably, he would be inviting Bertie and other FF spivs up for tea in the Uras)

    Good point. FF are far from dead, they'd get 20%+ in a GE if one was called now. Bagman's vote shouldn't be thought of so much as a FF vote, it was more of an x-factor vote. People thought he was your man off the telly, he seemed a nice enough fella and young. When he was linked to FF he crashed.

    FF will stick around because this Govt is incapable of finishing them off.

    There's a reason for that. Optioms are limited and lots of people who traditionally voted ff now see that FG and Labour are equally as bad. They have done nothing to set themselves apart from FF.. Nothing.

    There will be a lot of people who voted FG/Lab for the first time in the last election will go back to FF and in many ways its hard to blame them. Same people didn't trust FG in the good times to run the country and FG have done nothing really to change that view.
