    He says that the Country urgently needs a Government.

    This need is so "urgent" that the Greens decided to enter "urgent" talks last week, it was announced, on Tuesday that these "urgent" talks would start today.

    Well today's "urgent" talks lasted a little over half an hour and were actually talks about talks.

    Urgency me bollix.
    In fairness it's a bit difficult to align the left and right cheeks of the same a*se with a bit of green in the middle....

    If FF and FG go into coalition though, doesn;t that technically make them a Sinn Feinn government?

    So now we see the document that will rejoin the separate cheeks of the same arse together. Basically they seem to have agreed to do what they have failed to do in my life time....... so no change.

    Its only thanks to Simon Coveney and his British counterparts efforts in the past few months that O Neill is finally doing what she has been PAID for the past 3 years to do and which her electorate voted her in to do.......sure you must listen to the people!!!
    Unfortunately in so doing they gave an appearance of social responsibility and gopd optics for SF in the Republic.

    Its fair to say Leo as much as I think he is the wrong leader for FG, is a qualified GP and is much better placed to give her advice on Covid 19 than anything she can give him......unless the subject is knee capping.

    I don’t see you making the same point about the original posters comment on Frank Flannery which was 24 years ago? Or is it only Sinn Féin’s criminal history that we should ignore? Or perhaps you’d prefer to discuss their more recent crimes like the Paul Quinn affair?

    Btw how is fine gael supremo frank flannery doing after leo begged CAB to look into peoples finances? Did frank ever sort out his offshore accounts issue?
    Plus the €400,000 he got from rehab for 'lobbying'?
    Wow ! FG and FF have had their bad/dodgy apples for sure .... but are you really going to open this can of worms ?

    The Taoiseach consulted with the First and Deputy First Ministers of Northern Ireland on a health issue that, and stay with me here, affects the entire island. Given that Fine Gael are likely to be in opposition if another Government is ever formed, you're going to have to work harder on your "everything bad is Leo's fault" schtick.
