I don't want FF ever again and I don't want the same government re-elected, either party for that matter. We have learned what long periods in power do to a country.

However WTF are we going to put in instead of all of the above?

We could end up with no party with over 20% of the vote and a huge raft of lunatic independents.

I've been thinking a dictatorship would be the best way to go, Michael O'Leary for ten years, I can't stand him but he'd sort it.

Here's Christy's take on things as they stand:

"Theres no doubt they have us where they want us…. we seem to have become a nation of docile, obedient shit-takers….with a few exceptions the same galoots are in the driving seat, the banking elite have become, if anything, even more arrogant, the PAYE workers,the poor, the elderly, the infirm, the special needs, these are the ones paying for the sins of the greedy…for the laissez faire attitude of Bertie Ahern and his Government,the Ray (Dublin Bay) Burkes,the Pee Flynns and Ray McSharry’s and their team of lickers, the Brian Cowans, Mary Hanaffins, Mary Coughlans, Mary Harneys most of them, and many others, gone out to (the very long) grass with awesome pensions …. the Johnny Ronans,Bernard McNamara’s,Tom McFeeleys, and their numerous counterparts are still lingering at the trough.The nameless Banker Tycoons who fed these monsters endless millions to chase sick fantasies, to fuel helicopters and Maybachs, champagne swilling lifestyles, endless acquisitive ego-boosting and criminal behaviours… all these lauded by the same Bertie who suggested that those who tried to call a halt, would be better of committing suicide…What a dirty slur that was. What sort of a ( repeatedly elected ) leader would utter such a crass and low exhortation to his electorate from the platform…. At a time when thousands of families were suffering the pain of such loss and deprivation…
They seem to have us where they want us alright…supine on the couches of the nation, hypnotised by Football, X Factor and Downton Abbey. We are are back again at the same spot…countless thousands pay the price…..Savita Hallappanavar and her family also pay the price for our silence….."

As long as Labour leave the Croke Park agreement in place they'll be fine. They get more votes from Public Sector workers than the genuinely poor and it shows.
Sure it's only the league

And I presume this Mr Moore doesn't charge a fortune to get in to his concerts? ::)
And what it has to do with Savita I don't know.
I really get a pain every time some bloody well cossetted singer/musician ( Tax exile Bono e.g) starts berating the well off and alleging to be speaking up for the poor and downtrodden etc.
Most of the poor and downtrodden can't afford the ticket prices to see those hypocrites.
Christy also is supportinf a campaign to stop any exploration for oil off the coast of the afluent southern suburbs of Dublin  :-\

Hard to beat the good aul fashioned Irish begrudgery  ::)

So because Christy Moore is a successful musician he shouldn't be permitted to voice an opinion on the state of Ireland or the people who govern it? Or can he only do so if he doesn't charge people to come to his concerts? He doesn't dodge his taxes like bono and has done more free concerts for countless charities and causes than any other Irish artist that I can think of over the decades.

His opinion is no more important than yours or mine so why the need to quote his viewpoint?
Let him join Gaaboard if he wants his opinions here .

Quote where I said his opinion is important. If anything, you're the one making a veiled (negative) judgement on the importance of his opinion based on nothing more than him being successful at what he does. I posted it because it's often interesting to hear what certain people in the public eye think about things and because I happen to believe that he hits the nail on the head.
