Re: Irishers-Official 33rd Dáil Éireann election thread

As I said the other day, those of you who voted FF (and maybe some of you that didn't ;) ) need to get on to your local FF TD and advise them of your feelings. Politicians are sheep lads, time to lead them. Think Jim is on our side already on this one? Doesn't matter. Send him an email anyway. The ...

Re: Irishers-Official 33rd Dáil Éireann election thread

Point of information What happens to Leo when he is ousted? Does he stay on as a TD? Too young to retire. What else is he going to do? His MD reg has lapsed and that's a pain in the arse to get back. Europe will find a job for him. Bye-election with Coppinger getting back in after losing her seat.

Re: Irishers-Official 33rd Dáil Éireann election thread

It is going to very interesting to see what the turnout will be, given that voting is on a Saturday. You would have to assume that the higher the turnout the more that would suit the Shinners and the Greens depending on the constituency.
