    Default Meath East - Left Hand withers under Right Wing Austerity

    It appears that Austerity Junkies came out to gave Austericrats FG & FF a whopping 73% of Votes!

    It seems the Irish Love Affair with Austerity has reached new highs!

    Labour & SF have been reduced to also-rans - so much for "the people can't take it anymore"

    The people have Voted for the Auster-architects & Enforcers of Austerity!

    Is this a Revolution for Austerity?

    What about Gay Marriage - did it play badly for Labour - has Norris done a disservice?

    The latest completed tally show she has topped the poll with 39 of the vote, ahead of her main rival, Fianna Fáil Senator Thomas Byrne, who is on 34pc. She has secured over 9,500 first preference votes. Her lead is enough to ensure that Mr Byrne will not be able to secure enough transfers to overtake her.

    Out of interest, If you don't want austerity, what alternatives do you suggest?

    It would have been cheaper to leave the seat vacant!

    Neutrality would suggest that there are two sides to the argument.

    There aren't.

    The problem for the left wing was that the snout was eating too much for the pig to get off the ground.

    And then there was plump bunny telling porkies.
    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.

    You've made some pretty major assumptions in the OP...

    Do you think voters are thick?

    Nobody is pro-austerity. You'd need to be an imbecile to be so...

    But the anti-austerity brigade have never presented anything that is viable, let alone properly costed...

    Their spokespeople are regularly torn to shreds when it comes to the numbers...

    Their 'solutions' are based on fantasy, hopes, presumptions, assumptions and bullsh!t...

    They are hopeless, and that's why they have failed... again...

    Because most people with a brain know they're hopeless... even those who'd love to believe their fantasy land economics...

    I hope Kieran Allen, Joe Higgins, Richard Boyd Barrett, Clare Daly, the SF'ers and the rest of the bullsh!tters take note... although I'm pretty sure they won't...

    Voters may be p!ssed off but they don't want any government indulging in auction politics and getting us into even more debt as a result...

    Austerity from the Right or Hypocricy from the Left
    Take your choice
