    Default FF and SF the feared coalition??

    I've heard this mentioned many times with the recent surge in FF support. In many discussions many people have expressed a fear of a possible "Coalition of corruption" emerging between FF and SF after the next general election. The fear is this would bring together the country's two most corrupt political groupings. FF the gombeen party who destroyed the country and whose former leaders and senior party figures were the focus of endless tribunals.

    On the other side SF/IRA who controlled the rackets and organised crime in the country for the last 30 plus years. How likely is this to happen? Would FF go into coalition with SF? Martin is attacking SF now but we all know FF in oppostion bare no resemblance to FF in government? Will this possible coalition be a disaster for the state and the final nail in the coffin?

    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    Yes, FF and SF would coalesce but not until G Adams steps down.

    FF can't be see to have anything to do with him and his murderous background.

    How can you expect to be taking seriously? How would it destroy the State Johnny?

    Maybe so, could a possible Trevor Sargent like situation with the FF/Green coalition be possible here?

    FF have already nearly destroyed the state and SF/IRA tried for 30 years to do so.

    Possibly. Grizzly could see it as his final act as a true "statesman". An act if redemption if you like.
