    Default Are we witnessing the turning point of the life of this government?

    You get a sense of things beginning to slip out of the control of a government and the inevitable decline to election at a certain point in its lifespan. It's beginning to look like the perfect storm is emerging: O'Reilly is in trouble again over hospital improvements, the AGS walk out of pay talks, Varadkar admits the PN talks are not going too well, Dukes calls for PIIGS default, opinion polls show a decline in support, more charges for families soon from the budget, policy misjudgements and reversal with the alarms for the elderly being the most recent; the weight of events is against the government now and it looks like a point where the turn is upon them. I can't see Kenny and Gilmore delivering something to restore authority. I say January 2013 is where the wheels begin to come off.

    If this is the case, the most frustrating bit is that they really only have themselves to blame.

    The life of this government was sealed when FF brought the Troika in for tea.
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    We need a UKIP type party to stand up for Irish interests and not be cowed.

    We need a party that advocates UK Independence?

    we had it but rejected it - Libelass or libertas to give its other name. as for the need for such an outfit as UKIP here, can you not just join uncle joe in RULA or boy barrett in PULA - same ideas from the other side of the fence- twould be great crack I suspect

    Hayes opened his mouth about how everyone was still in the talks on Croke Park and within a day the AGSI walked out!
