Ireland politics (Part 2)

By God! :eyes:

Louise McSharry

Here’s this half-minister Pippa Hackett (GP) spouting and promoting forestry.
Pippa failed to win a Dáil seat, failed to win a seat in the Seanad and ends up a half-minister. I’m warming to Deppity McNamara (Ind) who appears to be as opposed to Coillte’s fuckacting as I am.


Its a FF minister that allowed this and planting fast growing trees is a good thing

He talks a lot of sense at times to be fair

The only reason that donkey ended up where she did was thanks to meeholes overarching need to be Taoiseach.

A complete waste of space

Matt Carthy is on the right track? :open_mouth:

Speaking at a press conference at the AGM in Limerick on Monday, Sinn Féin TD Matt Carthy told reporters that the “best-case scenario” is that there are no Green Party TDs elected at the next general election, despite Ms McDonald not ruling out entering a coalition with the Green Party

You’re surely not serious here - just when I was considering my allegiances going forward.

Carthy is a populist idiot

SF will have to go in with FF most likely

Any government is going to be made up of 2 out FF, FG or SF. Unless by some miracle one of them either gets a majority, god help us if they do, or if one of those 3 ends up with over 70 odd seats where they can get the one or 2 of the smaller parties to go in with them. As long as Martin is leader of FF they wont go in with SF and at the moment even with SF on 30 odd percent in the polls the 3 government parties are on 49% combined, if those numbers are followed in a general election it could be another FF, FG, Green government or if the Greens get wiped out I am sure if Labour had the numbers they would jump in. Not too sure of the SD.

wow, some result for the greens if after war in europe, making hard choices re climate & a deadly pandemic they might get back in

They do have a core of tofu eating zealots that will vote for them, whether that will be enough on its own remains to be seen, the it will come down to how they do on transfers. They need to maintain at least 5% to have a chance.

Dublin cares about their kids future - expect a strong showing there
rural oireland are too tick to care about dere kids - expect a bad showing there

Tax payer picks up 650m lecky bill for big business… Modern Ireland eh. Selling off forestry to overseas funds, letting corporates make billions off our natural gas reserves… not to mind vulture funds buying up all our housing…

FFG’s legacy - the country sold out from beneath :person_shrugging:t2:


Dont forget to add in forests now.

But but but GDP


Minister Ryan needs to explain this.
