    Default Dan Boyle - U-Turn on bye-elections

    Dan was on Rte Radio at 1 stating that the Donegal bye-election should be held as soon as possible but the other 3 bye-elections can wait till early spring.

    Greens want 'immediate' Donegal bye-election - RT News

    Yet he tweeted that the position of the green party is that all 4 should be held together.

    Dan Boyle (sendboyle) on Twitter

    Any green party members want to explain the change of heart ??
    I believe that children are the future

    Unless we stop them now.

    Well it's bloody stupid to hold them separately.

    Well I sure can't explain it.
    I've sent Dan a message but so far no reply.

    @conor_pope Government gave commitment in relation to High Court case on Donegal SW. Greens believe by-elections need to be held together.
    Indeed, but that was then (13 hours ago). It is different now.

    If Donegal S/W goes ahead but Dublin South is delayed, they will hammer the nails into the cofin of Eamonn Ryan's political career.

    Dan is probably awaiting for further clarification from John before he retweets

    The Glasraí make it up as they go along - whether it be going into gov with FF, O Dea or now, by elections.
    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.

    A politican makes a U-Turn - never!!!!

    The Green Party's left hand doesn't know what its right hand is doing. Their commander in chief wasn't long jumping on the public backlash of goverment cars and making calls for a 'pooling system'. He is surely the Eamonn Dunphy of Irish politics.
    From great tragedy emerges great art.

    Why is Boyle dealing with this anyway? Where's the elected Green TDs?
