Will you vote for Fianna Fail?
« on: November 19, 2010, 09:09:46 PM »
I was just wondering how many people would vote for Fianna Fail in the future. This is open to lads in the North and elsewhere, basically if you could, would you?

O.K. most people here know I'm a Fine Gaeler, so thats me declaring straight out. I just feel so frustrated and demoralised about the condition of our state and the future for the Irish state. I feel like someone has stabbed me in my heart, as I love my country so much.

I'm sure I'll get a bashing from some because of this poll, but I am very interested into seeing will people forgive and forget what Fianna Fail have done to us.

Despite all the crap we had to endure from FF since 1997 all they had to do was be straight for once ( I know I know ...it's like expecting snow in New Guinea) this week and they might have salvaged some bit of decency.... but no they couldnt even do that.
It was deny it, then it was " ECB/IMF just advising us" then it was "they're our partners" just giving a dig out ....and so on spoof spoof spoof and bluster.
I never thought I would say this but Fair play to Pat Rabbitte for letting that flute Carey ( a FF gobdaw if thee ever was one) have it with both barrells last night on RTE.

I agree Rossfan, Pat Rabbitte made me proud to be a Mayoman yesterday. Not a fan of Gilmore but I always liked Pat. The clip with Carey and Rabbitte was shown across the U.K. on a few channels yesterday.

I never voted for FF and I doubt I ever will and I can tell you I won't vote FG either.

Pat Rabitte is a little more than a bar room bore.

I'm from the North but I've always considered Pat Rabbitte to be nothing more than a hyperactive sensationalist tosspot. I remember during the Harry Whelehan/Brendan Smith crisis he hit the headlines when he announced that he had uncovered information which would 'rock the state to its very core'. I'm still waiting for it.
Careful now

The problem is who do we vote for now. I have little faith in any of the major parties. I think the country is crying out for something new and has been for a long time.

I have had a faint notion of politics since 1977. Bar from the 30th June 1981 to 9th March 1982, the 14th December 1982 to 10th March 1987 and the 15th December 1994 to 26 June 1997, Fianna Fail have held power. Fine Gael have held power in that period for about 8 and a half years out of 33 years. That's roughly 75% of that time with Fianna fail in power.

If you go from 1932, Fianna Fail have been in power for all but 19 out of 78 years.

I have voted for change since the late 80's. Change, being anything other than the usual Dynasty following on from their father into a safe seat, Change from the brown paper bag boys, change from the local historical politics, change from civil war politics.

We have been fooled for years that there was a choice of government in this country.  With this dominance Fianna Fail have been given free reign.  ;D

Switch things around and hypothetically imagine FG had been in power for the last 13 years. Do people genuinely believe that things would have worked out much differently?

Find it quite interesting that there has been 6 people who voted yes so far, quite interesting. I'm quite Amazed actually.

I wonder what Fianna Fail would have to do for them to vote no, re-enter the United Kingdom or make drowning kittens/puppies a government policy perhaps!

True. Nothing to do with the greedy bastard 'nation' who gripped capitalism by the ballix when things were going well.
