The latest news on the Irish General Election
Whilst admitting that Fine Gael and Labour are ‘home and dry’ as the two big winners of this election, Gormley urged voters to think Green despite their desperate dalliance with Fianna Fail. He may struggle to find an audience.
Gormley has also insisted that he will not walk out on the Greens if he loses his seat in Dublin South-East.
Angry bosses at TV3 have called on the new government to instantly renege on a last minute deal signed off by outgoing Communications Minister Pat Carey.
TV3, the independently owned station, is furious that Carey has given the state run RTE permission to launch five new digital TV channels in his last act in office
The station, which relies on advertising to stay alive, say Carey’s actions threaten jobs and growth in the media industry and want the new government to cancel it as soon as they get into power.
Who’d be a politician? A Fianna Fail candidate got nowhere when he tried to organize transport to the polling station for a female constituent suffering with Alzeihemer’s Disease.
The woman’s husband was having none of it when the offer was made and retorted: “You didn’t contact me for 3 years when she was sick so you can f***off now.”
The Irish Examiner has just printed its awards for the best and most original posters of the 2011 General Election campaign – from those looking for votes and those voting but the best line of all was the name of the column - ‘Never Mind The Ballots’.
Friday morning’s Star and Sun newspapers both urged voters to ‘Kick Them In The Ballots’.
Fine Gael are so confident that they will indeed lead the next Government that they have already enlisted former president of the European Parliament Pat Cox to help them prepare for their first 100 days in office.
