    Default Election Date November 25 2010

    In the opinion piece in the Sunday Business Post "Inside Politics, Back Room" page 19 in the main section of the paper, which this week was obviously written by a FFer, his last note at the end of the article was

    My guess is it'll fall with the budget - as a consequence of independents backing out and followed swiftly by an avalanche of heroic FF gombeen men.

    Very true about Labour the longer they have the more prepared they will be especially in rural areas!

    Bring your 'fall day' a week earlier as Cowen and FF will want the maximum time of 4 weeks for the campaign to get their message across and to expose the likes of Labour in particular with their populist but unrealistic talk.

    That would be a short campaign.

    Maybe.

    I can't see them going without a flurry of pro-government ads in the run up to the campaign though, can you?

    More appearances for them on their tame Pravda shows with Tubridy and O'Connor.

    I thought FF had ruined the country and nobody could afford a holiday. I cancelled my 4th holiday this year in solidarity with the downtrodden people of Ireland. Everyone should do the same !
    Anywa, if the election is 25th Nov how the heck could anyone miss the best election campaign in the short history of our country
