Or Centrist maybe....
your writing style is strangely familiar moloney. What do the letters JK mean to you?
'To attempt to rerun a referendum as a means of reversing the democratic decision taken by the people would be rightly regarded as an affront'. Dick Roche TD 21.12.01
It's a Centred country. Centrist parties FF and FG have around 70%+ of the vote. But it's to the economic Right of most Western EU states in terms of economic management, though economically slightly to the Left of Britain due to the large public-sector in Ireland.
Over 70% of us voted for perceived centre-right parties last year, I'd say that's enough discussion.
FF is hardly centre-right given its traditional cosiness with the unions. Remember Dermo Ahern speaking out against privatisation of the ESB a few yrs back.Originally Posted by Mozalini
Ireland has wings?
So FF against privitisation are they? Funny way of showing it. Anyway I said perceived, I don't believe either are but that's what they tell you in college unfortunately.Originally Posted by FutureTaoiseach
A bird never flew on one wing
Neither. Your average Irish person would probably not identify with either left or right but would embrace aspects of both. So I think centrist would be the fairest label you could use.
Economic Left/Right: -2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.88
Some people see things as they are and ask why? I dream things that never were and ask why not?
