    Default Chris Andrews TD calls for FF to merge with FG!

    I didn't quite believe this but it's true. I've copied his Tweets below. After failing to save FF with the National Govt ruse, FF are now just going for the Big One and calling for both parties to merge into one because 'voters can't tell the difference between them'! And this from the grandson of Todd Andrews, a founder of FF and vicious anti treatyite.

    FG are not getting the traction in the polls because people see little difference between FF and FG. A merger makes sense to me

    Is this the most obvious pubic admission that FF TDs are utterly panicking? They obviously suspect that FF are looking at a generation or more out of power.

    When asked how long a merger would take to complete he said this;

    If people were serious it shouldn't take long. I believe there is as much difference within FF as there is between FF and FG.

    If this happened it would utterly transform the political landscape and probably result in the traditional left/right split found in other countries. Certainly Labour would have to benefit as they would automatically become the main opposition party.

    Much more likely that Ganley will come out with PD2 backed by Indo etc in the hope of reducing the FG vote and keeping their snouts in the trough.

    Enda needs to squish this idea fast.

    FFers need to know there'll be no hiding place, no sanctuary, no amnesty. They are going to PAY for their treachery.

    And no doubt Chris has always been on the good side, sticking up for the people. Pity his "side" always managed to marginally lose, and FF policy became what it is.
