    Default Count Down To the General Election

    So will there be a General Election in 2010?
    Will the Greens walk having first split into pro FF and anti FF groups?

    If they do have an election who is there to vote for?

    They all look like useless corrupt gombeens from where I'm sat.

    Maybe now we've got an election we should hold out for a revolution?

    I am inclined to view we will have GE now. FF realise they may lose all by elections, and will have to have GE in New year. AS they run risk of losing vote on budget, they may well call it a day and leave it to opposition to implement budget. After all why would FF give alternativeg the satisfaction of bringing in a tough budget only then for them to exit. So cut and run now seems a lilkely option.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    I wonder if the government will even last until tomorrow. Somehow I think that the Greens are in the PD situation of being faced with doing the right and honourable thing or staying in government with FF. The PDs screwed up but will the Greens do likewise? It is the difference between electoral survival and electoral extinction for the Greens.

    If so, the Cope playing musical chairs with his own seat is a disgrace.

    An election is pointless because whoever is in power is simply going to have to implement the same cuts and repayments.

    But the won't have blood on their hands. I for one, want to see FF get slaughtered in the next GE and I want the incoming govt to be serious about political reform to end this parish pump gombeen politics that has played a part in ruining this country.
    Repeal the 8th
