SF don't have enough candidates running to be the biggest party. Both other parties have ruled out going in with them but that could change now. It would be a major mistake by FF and FG to let SF be the main opposition party for 5 years

SF are on 31% in the 18-35 age range on the exit poll and that will only grow in opposition

They're winning seats where I never thought they'd win seats, including my own constituency

on the other hand I was convinced we'd be voting again any month now for the last 4 years since 2016 election but were I SF I'd be looking at avoiding going into government atm at all costs citing whatever excuse they can up with so they can try again with more candidates. Whether that would backfire or not who knows

Not followed here, but have on twitter. Loving the hot take that Varadkar is being punished for his anti-Brexit/British stance by voting for SF. :lol:

That's all, sorry if already been discussed in here, imagine it probably has. :blush: :aww:
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

eh right before the election was called there was a political own goal where Varadkar and co wanted to commemerate the RIC as part of the centenary commemorations and that went down like a lead balloon and eventually backtracked on. But the bigger factor was them being in government for 9 years and public services being a disaster in particular housing and the health service and SF seemed to catch lightning in a bottle this time by just saying we're not FF or FG. Doubt it will repeat itself if SF go into government but if theres another election this year they will be the largest party in the dail.

SF in debates and the media pre election: Stop bringing up the IRA
SF after the election:
Singing about the IRA

They are by far the party most in line with my views but they still have so many idiots

The ” Come out ye Black and Tans” stuff is clearly a reference to the governments idiotic recent idea to commemorate the RIC. The minister saying “up the ra” is less defendable.

More liberal, less conservative. In the north they are the voice of reason in government because the opposition thinks the world is 6000 years old.

Watching Mary Lou's interviews today I think there's a strong chance Sinn Fein might try for a second election with them running more candidates if the will isnt there for a government without FG and FF. RTE have said Sinn Fein could have pulled 11 more seats had they ran more candidates.

Had to google RIC after it being mentioned again. Good f***ing grief, what on earth possessed them to suggest such a thing? :lol:
