Hey Grandad ... I wouldn't worry about polls as they are always only a snapshot of a trend and there is usually a 3% margin of error on these things at least.What would concern me more in a state using proportional representation is the startling news that the Irish electoral register may be 'incorrect' by up to 40% of the details entered on it.And the Oireachtas seem quite happy to say that they don't intend to correct that until AFTER the 2012 General Election.http://www.oireachtas.ie/viewdoc.asp?DocID=5426&&CatID=63&StartDate=01%20January%202006&OrderAscending=0Its possible that the last LE, Euro, three referendums and the General Election may well have serious irregularities in the background.In fact, given the habit of FF stalwarts in the western bogs of having two voting cards per person (one at the mammy's and one at the new Tig) along with the above news I'd say that its time to notify Amnesty International, Transparency International and make sure there's some observers at the next polls. Particularly in the bible-bog belt.

Good old Republicans ... a heartfelt message about democratic principles and a reference to punching people in the face.Clearly not a graduate- of either University or Life.

Cardi - I say Fuck too [quite a lot, actually], but I'm not sure what F******************* represents?

TT - No.  I think you're the target.  I'll fight you for the honour?

Mick - Ha!!  Very nicely translated.  :)

Cardi - And I'm sure if Fianna Fail put up a bull's s bollicks, that too would get elected.  Democracy is dead.  Long live democracy.  If you want to change your flag, all you have to do is move?  There is nothing I can do as your service provider is in the U.K.  Sorry!

Recent comments about valley girls aside (and there may be some truth in the myth) - It was truly believed that if the Labour Party put up a donkey as a candidate in the valleys constituencies that it would be elected!!

hi GD, normally i wouldn't cut and paste a joke - but just for today....'Working people often ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting...'Herself and I went down to the village shop the other day. We were only in there five minutes and when we came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.I said, "Aw, come on Guard, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for worn tyres. So herself called him a shithead. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing out a third ticket.This went on for about 15 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.Personally, we didn't care. We came to Glendoher by bus and the car had a Fianna Fáil sticker. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired.It's important at our age.:-) .-= Mick´s last brainfart .. The Emigrant Irish – A Vote =-.
