    Do you actually have a clue what you are talking about or just talking out of your hole?

    FF and Labour actually have closer policies these days.

    As Varadkar put it on the Week in Politics on Sunday, Unlike FF and Labour who want to raise taxes and keep the bloated public sector as is, FG want to cut taxes and cut back public spending. Pretty major difference.

    Stances on corruption:
    Lowry; thrown out of FG

    Haughey, Bertie... the list could go on; continued to live the life of riley as FF hack defend them tooth and nail.


    Please look at the FG website and read their policies before you spout rubbish about them being so similar to FF. You will find them to be at odds on many issues (healthcare being another major one...)
    Economic Left/Right: 0.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.67

    The" Nothing Doing until a General Election is Held" party.

    Honestly - FF can find their own way out of the mess they left themselves in, and the Left might think about putting together a programme that they can all kind of agree on and not scare the bejesus out of 75-80% of the electorate - Fine Gael are no longer in the political charity business.

    What is possible is FF and FG entering into some sort of "grand coalition" in the near future. This would eventually show up them up for what they are- both neo-liberal right wing parties committed to de-regulation, privatisation, slashing public spending and low taxation on the rich.

    FF and the DUP would be more natural bedfellows.
