    Good question!

    Fianna Fail candidates masquerade in their bailiwicks as Hail Fellow Well Met Gombeens to get elected. Once elected, they are open to suggestions from Lobbyists with little regard for their electorate, as they are easily fooled come the next election.

    One other question: Who pays for the running of this country?
    Tax Take is:
    33% PAYE
    33% VAT
    16% Excise
    10%? (open to correction) Corporation Tax including Transfer-Pricing Multinationals!

    And yet despite all this our standards of living are light years ahead of the standards of living 20, 30 or 40 years ago.

    Even the unemployed can afford cars, Sky subscriptions, broadband and annual holidays.

    It's all about perspective you know, but hey, if you think you can do better, why not stand in the next election.

This message board and other Irish political sites on the internet are at least 95% against FF. Its time we fought back in an organised manner so I would like to suggest interested FF people could use Paltalk Scene to have an ad hoch meeting to organise a joint effort. As a newcomer here I cannot start threads or use pm facility so am using this thread to contact you.

    When I say meeting on Paltalk I mean a 30 to 60 minute session now and then when realtime text and voice can be used. Would actually like to get a few people who regulary attack FF in Paltalk for no holds barred sessions.

    Interested in the notion ?

    Totally surprised that 95% aren`t in support of Fianna FAIL bearing in mind what a great job they are doing

    FF'ers always seem to be traveling from their holiday homes. Or is that their primary homes?
