Stating the obvious
I see PD leader Mary Harney has seen fit to waste a few minute's of journalists time and her own breath by ruling out being part of a coalition with Sinn Féin after the next election. You needn't have bothered, Mary. Sinn Féin have absolutely no intention of being part of a government where right wing, anti-working class policies are the norm. Sinn Féin believe in standing up for the working class people, the PDs take their orders from big business. They are an incompatible pair and Sinn Féin cannot support the PDs in government although unless Mary can improve on her pathetic 2% in the council elections, there'll be very few bothering to knock at her door when it comes the time to look for coalition partners.
