    Default Should David McWilliams be Taoiseach?

    Should David McWilliams be leader of Fianna Fail, and Taoiseach, assisted by George Lee as Minister for Finance and Tainiste?

    Might The Brians step aside in the National Interest. There is a compelling case that those in charge that swear they never saw it coming, simply are incompetent, and lack the ability to steer a course to get the Nation on its feet again.
    Fianna Fail will allow the Irish People, to me milked like Milch Cows, by the CIF through high house prices, rents, and land prices, at the expense of competitiveness,and quality of life. FF+CIF=1

    The Brians et al would seemed to be disqualified on that basis as their policies have been wrong for the FF tenure in power.

    Interlinked in the economic crisis and the turmoil of greed, arrogance, blatant ignorance and corruption that we've been through over the last 10 years, is a national identity crisis. We need to appoint a Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht who can inspire a new vision for Ireland that is sympathetic to our history and rich traditions. Honesty, integrity, ambition, creativity, friendliness, hard work and artistic flair is what us Irish should be famous for. Not cute-hoorism, corruption, drunkeness, an ingrained inferiority complex, idleness, lack of substance and that shallow, happy-go-lucky surface that Americans and Europeans are growing increasingly tired of.

    By that logic we'd have to include Miriam in the cabinet, along with Hobbs, Tubridy, Cooper, Norris, Ted Walsh, Aiden O'Brien and Michael O'Leary

    Strangely enough none of them, nor Macker, nor George (I predicted 20 of the last 2 recessions) Lee have ever run for local or national govt.

    Maybe they're waiting for FG to introduce a list system

    That would be a good line for all those kids that ride their bikes with no hands.

    Yes. He recognises the need for a more liberalised economy and for a less censorious debate on immigration.

    Cello has a point. There is a lack of any sense of national identity or moral compass. But then, 11 years of craven FF 'leadership' have left us a shallow, thick people.
    You have disgraced yourselves again...

    one wonders when Mr McW was working in his NY hedge fund or his property company was he quite as bearish on the irish banks.

    Hes a windbag, shallow on analysis, a media invention with limited skills beyond self hype and a good ear for the soundbite. So, hed be a perfect politician

    Should David McWilliams be Taoiseach?

    But why?

    Is it because the ever-so-smug and comfortably-off have lost some of their their smugness!
