Some people (who think they're in the know) question the future longetivity of the PDs.
I ask.....is there a future for FG ?
Let's take a factual look at the results of the next general election...no matter what year it's called.
FF will be the party with the most seats.
They'll sit and wait for other parties to make a move towards forming a government....and they'll all (except FG) will do a Finian McGrath to get into government.
So, FF will form a government on an agreed Programme for Government with the Greens, Independents (including Mick Lowry), Sinn Fein (yes, because they've proven them selves in NI) and the PDs.
FF cannot form a government with Labour bewcause they'll have to give half the cabinet seats to them....and the FF ministers will revolt if this happens.
so, we'll have another FF-led government.
The point is: A vote for FG is a wasted vote. They'll never get into government.
If you don't believe me, ask Paddy Power to give you the odds on FG getting into government next time round...or the one after that.
If the PDs get even one seat, they'll be in government for definite!
