    I'll put you out of your misery. No they wont apologise.

    Why not? It would be a sign of weakness...

    Stupid thread.

    If they apologised they'd be hammered even more for being useless.

    they still have 24% percent support in the polls.Amazing that considering they have effectively bankrupted the country with that disastrous bank bailout.

    Useless thread.
    To live honestly, to hurt no one, to give every one his due.

    It came up at the TUI conference when Don Ryan said - '

    None of you has had the decency to admit your huge mistakes.'

    toughbutfair says they won't apologise because they would be hammered even more.

    I wonder about that.

    libertarian-right says they think it would be seen as a sign of weakness.

    But how many signs of weakness do we need?

    Decency demands an apology. Can they not see that?

    It would begin to show some respect.

    This government won't apologize because it would involve admitting they were wrong, which would mean that even the people who have always voted for them and who they managed to convince that it wasn't their fault and that it was bear stearns and that they are now doing the right thing to get us out of the mess would realize that they were wrong and would not be able to vote for them. Even those rural people who believe in some warped version of democracy where you inherit your vote, ie you vote for one of the civil war parties because your father and grandfather voted for them, even they would have trouble voting for this government. That is why this government will not apologize, because Fianna Fail's sole raison d'etre is to be in power for as long as possible, and if they apologized they would never again be in power.
