Thread: Gilmore hinting at Labour/FF coalition option

  1. #1

    Default Gilmore hinting at Labour/FF coalition option

    RT News: Labour-led Government achievable - Gilmore

    This has already been mentioned on other threads, but the report on what Gilmore is saying now makes it more likely. If Gilmore is suggesting that Labour can lead the next coalition government, but isn't calling out FG as the other party, is he opening the door to a Labour led government with FF being the junior partner?

    Certainly Gilmore as Taoiseach and Linehan in Finance would appear to be a potential winner, based on their ratings, but would FF be prepared to be the junior party in government?
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    Labour wouldn't dare put FF back in, it would be an object lesson in how to lose an epoch changing moment.
    So many lamp posts, so little rope.

    This all sounds a lot like 1992 again - however I think that Labour wouldn't go for that option unless they have no other choice, and even then, it's incredibly unlikely after what happened Labour in the 1997 election.

    Gilmore has hinted at nothing of the sort in that OP link.

    Why would Gilmore turn down an opportunity of a lifetime for Labour? Why play second fiddle to FG when they could lead a Government?

    Also, the very possibility might be a good cynical way to scaremonger for FG in the GE

    I think that this is just spin put out by FG or FF to stop people voting Lab.
