Crucially it’s a disaster for the cohort of FF voters who despise the shinner Garda murdering scum

Best thing that can happen now is they go in to coalition with FF. I think they're too smart and too big though to get screwed over the way many others have.

But throw them at health and housing and see how they get on

I could equally blame dumb cúnts like you.

You spend all your time talking about FF and talking nonsense despite knowing they are a bit part player in a global recession.

You're such a thick cúnt you thought the population would vote for FG in perpetuity. You more than any dumb cúnt pushed out the FF toxic line and now you're shocked when the voters abandon the middle.

The system is built on our two parties swapping power and fúcksticks like you made every effort you could to kill off one half of the confidence trick.

At least I faught for my side you fùcking internet mouth.

Your party leader and front bench have spent the last few years telling everyone that everything is shit ..... while simultaneously supporting the government ...... and you’re wondering why Sinn Fein have made a huge breakthrough at FF’s expense

You really are deluded if you don’t think the behaviour of Martin, Lisa chambers, and your mate daragh O’Brien ..... on issues around health, brexit and housing ..... hasn’t played right into the hands of the shinners

From the man whose arguments have essentially been smileys and glib one liners for a while.

That’s the most words you’ve packed in a post and it’s full of seethe.

I’ve no problem with you arguing your case on their treatment after the recession but it’s the fact that you’ve stood by whilst they’ve engaged in auction politics that’s baffling.

Of course I'm seething

Sinn Fein are the most popular party in Ireland. Anybody who isn't equal parts seething and shitting it is a fool.

Anyway I need to go back for the first count and leave the problems of Ireland to you lads. Darragh O'Brien got 9700 votes today so I can tell my kids what I did when the time comes.

You lads can point to your posts with equal pride.

It could be argued that C&S did neither FG or FF any favours, and that in fact that this went a long way to making the likes of SF more electable.

They're between a rock and a hard place for sure.

I think you're right. Another FF/FG shotgun wedding would only further increase this so-called protest vote.

I also think that if SF did get in to government now, they'd be very quickly found out.

The magnitude of the margin by which some SF candidates got the most first preferences in some constituencies is mind boggling.

Yep lesser of two evils. Shutting them out now would just feed the myth that it’s them against the establishment. Let them have a few ministries and they can shit the bed like the rest of them. We all have a duty to fight them on their bullshit issues and not just dismiss them as scum. At my vote centre I saw they had mobilised a lot of people you’d never usually see voting. We have a full on battle on our hands or we’ll be the next Greece

Good man mullet ..... I think you’re one of the good guys too

Worth remembering that Twice as many people voted for the current arrangement (of FG/ff running the show) as voted for Garda murdering scumbags

Both parties need to tackle the failed state narrative that’s taken hold .....

I’d love to see Michael McGrath and Pascal D getting together as party leaders to that effect

I think Meehole and Leo got this one badly wrong

Really don't think it's lesser of two. Once they're in government it'll legitimise them more and make it easier for fence sitters to vote for them. Have to find some sort of stable government while the centre goes on all out attack re. their policies and terrorism.

Tend to agree, though clearly they are already a legitimate party for many voters.

How do you form a Government without them and one of FG and FF though?

In some places they ran one candidate who got elected with 1.5 times the quota. They weren't ready for this at all. So many votes wasted that could have gone to a second candidate. They could have run a bunch of donkeys and ended up with an overall majority, but with a load of incompetents in place.

Having them in coalition now is probably the best outcome, given this election result.

Much as I don't like them, they did smash it this time around, and on that basis they deserve a shot at forming a government. At least they won't be in sole control.

Yeah it's difficult to call. Wouldn't like to be making that decision as FF leader. A lot comes down to FG too. They might be satisfied to spend a term in opposition and watch things collapse.

Really though, SF are a handful of very competent members now supported by an array of failed councillors getting in on a wave. Might be best they get found out now.
