    Default Will FG rule out coalition with FF?

    Or not? They seem all over the place with no sign of a clear message of what they are about. Latest instance is Michael Noonan praising Lenihan today for bringing 'certainty' into the banking situation.

    If the numbers stack up, will they plump for FF in the guise of 'national government'?

    Not so pointless, if Labour was larger than FG and FF smaller and the numbers added up, it would happen. No FG leader is going to play second fiddle to Labour, it would be the end of them.

    Come election time the major issue will be the 4 year plan and the budgets for the next decade or two decades.
    The economy and the public finances are in such a dire state now that we are locked into paying back the 35 Billion euro and massive cuts in public spending on health, education, social welfare, pensions, grants and everything else.
    FF have put out their stall - we know what they have to offer.
    FG and Labour have no alternatives.
    They will be forced to stick to same 4 year plan, the same tax hikes and spending cuts.
    Even Sinn Fein and the most lunatic left wing candidates if they were in government - should there be seismic change in political attitudes - will find they cannot change the arithmetic or else risk Third World status for this country.
    Political differences are therefore irrelevant and party loyalties are irrelevant.

    It means it makes no difference who is elected.

    We are effectively in an uphill climb clinging on by our fingernails and political debate is over.

    I predict Fianna Fail will be the junior partner in the next government at the very least.

    They have already ruled it out again and again and again. Stupid thread.

    How many hundreds of times must it be ruled out before you actually get the message?
