    Default The return of 14% Bond Rates and Bank Runs a growing prospect for Ireland!

    The prospect of a return of Fianna Fáil Government should strike fear into the heart of every sane Irish person just as it terrifies every depositor, every bondholder, and as it should terrify every worker and person supported by the State's borrowed funds.

    "There is a fairer way to recovery that would impact less on the vulnerable " or so Fianna Fáil are telling us these days in their bid to return to power and Government.


    The Fianna Fáil strategy is based on buying their way back to power even though there is no money to buy votes with. This can only lead to another another Financial mess that they left behind them when last in power.

    It seems that they want to return to power and so they tell us they can fix what they broke even though they could not fix it when in Government.

    They said that money could not be borrowed cheaper and that debt deals could not be secured.

    The overwhelming likelihood of a Fianna Fáil by-election win in East Meath is bound to unnerve the markets if they conclude that the majority of voters no longer support the Government parties.

    The Fianna Fáil strategy is based on buying their way back to power even though there is no money to buy votes with. This can only lead to another another Financial mess that they left behind them when last in power.

    The key to the outcome of the Meath By-election depends on whether Fianna Fáil win transfers from other parties namely Labour and Sinn Féin who are the real King Makers. These voters have the power to determine the outcome! Will they stop Michael and Thomas.

    Fine Gael now know that they are trailing Fianna Fáil and only the Sinn Féin voters now can stop Fianna Fáil.


    Michael Martin is very confident of a win in Meath East putting him back on the road to becoming Taoiseach in as little as 6 months!

    Well that's summed up the world nicely. A bit of evidence of any of this might not go amiss here never mind a hint of understanding why we had 14% bond rates.

    A Government committed to buying votes and power is a sure route to ruin ! Have you forgotten so soon or are you too looking for a "softer fairer way" and ready to trade your vote for ruin?

    How do you expect investors to react to Fianna Fáil getting 50% or more of the votes in any Irish Election?

    People don't leave their deposits in Irish Banks under Fianna Fáil!

    Any FG seems to be doing a remarkable job copying FF despite the voters mandate for change.

    You know that somebody badly needs to get a grip, when they are reading the Twitter comments of Meehaul Martin....and taking them seriously.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    "Change" is a great political buzzword!

    There is no magic bullet!

    There is reality and real progress!

    A Fianna Fáil Government that would not impose a property tax, not reduce Childrens allowance, not make any cute but give everyone an easier ride would only lead to ruin.

    Well, at least the OPer is now starting crazy threads about FF based on relatively contemporary politics, rather than bizarre attacks about the Civil War

    If I had a vote in the by-election, I really don't know who I'd vote for. I think I'd give the FFer the lowest preference and then randomly work my way up.

    I do think that all other parties need to engage in a concerted campaign to remind the nation what FF did to the country. The Sinn Féiners need to realise that they won't win votes from FG. They're fighting for the same ground as FF so they should be focusing a lot of their fire a few rows down on the opposition benches.
