    Default It is all the fault of Fianna Fail! We are not capable of righting wrongs. Our mandate is waffling

    Enda reveals all!

    These idiots were elected on the basis of their promises that they would sort out the mess and reform Irish politics. They failed and this latest nonsense from the Flowerpot Man is more than tiresome.

    This one is particularly laughable in the light of the constant job losses:

    He added that they had “stabilised the situation” and have created under a 1000 private sector jobs every month for the past fifteen months.

    Can't disagree with a word of that. Fianna Fáil in opposition are getting away with murder. After starting responsible they are now back to the populism that bankrupted Ireland in the late 1970s early 80s and which turned Albert Reynolds' and John Bruton's sustainable economy into an over-inflated property bubble.

    Never, ever forget why we are where we are. It's because Bertie Ahern used huge pay increases to public sector worlers to buy their vote and because they diverted tax breaks (yes, public resources!) to keep the property fire lit! This they did while they undermined the tax base!

    Ireland's crash has been so more difficult because of FF populism. Kenny and the media have let Martin's FF off the hook in recent months. No harm for Kenny to get his speak in before Martin's revisionist speech tomorrow night. People attack FG's performance in opposition before the crash! Yet look at FF's post crash.

    Ah Bertie "I gave him the job because he was me mate" Ahearne.

    How much of the public sector that he created exists simply to give jobs to the heirs of the well connected? I'd say the percentage that does useful, meaningful work is a tiny fraction of the whole.

    How much time has to pass by before this Government will take responsibility for what they do? I'm very aware the last government made a balls of things, but the current government came in with a mandate to fix things. How long do they want before they can be held accountable?

    Actually I think most people are attacking FGs performance IN government ...you know stuff like silence on €800,000 packages in bailed out banks, loads of money for friends and crony appointments, hospitals based on parish politics and electoral concerns rather than medical need , whilst screaming about cuts "necessary" for the disabled unemployed and low paid workers
    Is there any Incompetence Scandal or Corruption that would actually make the Irish electorate wake up ....It seems not, so screw em

    Kenny isn't wrong in that article. "We are where we are" because of FF and the people who put them there - repeatedly. Having said that I take issue with this:

    Mr Kenny said Fianna Fail left a generation saddled with massive personal debt.
    No, Mr. Kenny. You cannot negate your own part (and that of your party and Labour) in saddling the people of this state with tens and tens of billions of debt they had nothing to do with. You are as much to blame as any in FF, only your jiggery-pokery may cost us much, much more in the long term.

    Isn't it a bit rich to have a Fianna Failer opening this thread?

    Jeez....are you for real? you must be making that up or had a liquid lunch. I do not remember Fine Fail doing anything like that. Plus the fact they are up in the polls shows people love them under M.Martin. All these lies about Fine Fail is just...just...nonsense. I for one have no memory of FF shenanigans.

    He said the Government had “stabilised the situation”, creating 1,000 private sector jobs every month for the past 15 months.
    They have not created ONE single private sector job! Private sector businesses may have done so!
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.
