    FINE GAEL leader Enda Kenny predicted his party would dominate Irish politics for the next decade.

    More from The Irish Times.

    Enda Kenny might have united Fine Gael but except for Mayo he is a huge turn off for voters.

    He may be right, but does he honestly believe that this prospect consoles and reassures the Irish nation?

    If they can assure to my satisfaction that we can trust them on immigration, and continue pushing for public-sector reform, they will have my vote in a General Election, provided the economy remains in its current state. As a former PD voter, I welcome their movement in the direction of the economic centre-right since 2007. I also welcome the fact that EK did not slap down Varadkar over his correct comments on immigration recently. Despite my differences with the party's positions over the year, I have always noted that FG is a more honest party than FF where political-ethics are concerned, and will be voting for them in the locals though not the euros this year.

    Dominate? Pretty bold statement for the leader of a party thats never once won a second term in govt, and only come close to the size of FF once.

    doesn't do anything for me, he has a male-dominated shadow cabinet and appears quite testy. As to voting FG, nope, most appalling opposition ever
    and thats with weighted Dáil speaking time.

    God almighty! You think he would have learned from the 'new shoes for the walk to Áras an Uachtaráin' mistake before the last election. Confidence is projected in the manner in which you behave not in some ham fisted bragging.

    Why? They are pretty much the same party as Fianna Fail with a less seedier reputation and took a different side in the Civil War. No real reason why they should dominate.
