Who do you think you are kidding Mr Dempsey?

In a desperate attempt to try and take the gloss off a good day for Sinn Féin both the Brown envelope brigade and the stickies have announced that they will not be entering a coalition with Sinn Féin after the election.


Only the most naive person would actually believe this crap from Fianna Fáil. When they would enter coalition with the PD's they would enter coalition with the Devil himself!

With regards Labour, I can't say I am surprised. Those boys have sold their souls and their working class constituents to the Blue-Shirts for 30 pieces of silver.

It's still amusing though to hear a supposed working class, left wing party like Labour citing "economic policy differences" as the reason why they would not enter government with Sinn Féin.

"Differences over economic policy were cited by Labour's Eamon Gilmore as the reason his party would not consider coalition with Sinn Féin."

Imagine the sheer cheek of a Socialist party like Sinn Féin talking about issues like "wealth distribution" and "making the rich pay their share", sure it's enough to make them brave working class heroes in Labour cry out in agony.

What galls me though is that this sad excuse for a left wing party still claim to be the party of Connolly!!

He would be spinning in his grave!!

I know a few Labour members and most of them are 100% socialists and very hard working activists. However as long as the sticks rule their party they will continue to lead them further and further away from their political roots.

In relation to Fianna Fáil

Dempsey must think we all came up the Liffey in a bubble, his party would no more refuse coalition with Sinn Féin if the numbers stacked that way as would I refuse a glass/bottle of Whiskey.

His party's motto is power at all costs, that is the reality. He fails to see the wood for the trees though because the real question is this, would Sinn Féin go into government with Fianna Fáil??

I know that many people believe it's a simple case of , "ach sure the shinners would jump at the chance of government".

Sorry lads, you couldn't be further from the truth.

As Gerry Adams has said we are ready for government but we will not be entering government just for the sake of it. If we can't be sure that our agenda and our policies will be carried out then it will be a , "thanks but no thanks!"

"Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said his party would be seeking a mandate to go into Government, but not just for the sake of it.

Mr Adams said the election was a farce because of the absence of a focus on how to manage the country's wealth."

It's always best not to second guess the electorate, they will decide how the numbers lie after this election.

It's shaping up to being a cracking contest!
