trapsagenius, I don't have strong affiliations with any party. In fact my opinion is that anyone who does is politically, economically and sociologically naive. Politicians are a cancer on society in my opinion. Those that start out with high ideals eventually succumb to the lure of power and money. Most get into politics only for the power and money. We do however have to work with what we've got.
A government that ends its term having done more good than harm is very rare in my experience on this island. My initial response in this thread was to dispel the fearmongering among FF supporters that the opposition in power was a frightening thought. I hope I have gone some way to allaying those fears.
There seems to be a concerted effort on this board and on p.ie from FF supporters to focus attention on the opposition because they are failing miserably to defend their own party. Particularly when headlines like these seem to be all too common.

If this is true, it is another disgrace. However, that wont stop Mr Callely seeking our votes in 2012.
