So, FF and their FG twin are refusing to even speak to SF, and that's ok.

FF made an election pledge not of go into coalition with FG.
FG made an election pledge not to go into coalition with FF.
FF made an election pledge not to get involved in a confidence and supply with FG and FG did the same.
There are not the numbers for any of the three main parties to form a viable government on their own.

So, either FF and FG are lying or we're going for a second election, an election caused by FF and FG's outright refusal to even speak to the party who by far won the popular vote of the people last weekend.

It's fairly obvious how that'll work out for the civil war party scumbags.

Another Election seems fairly imminent. What an absolute joke
Fantastic news it it becomes reality. That will have Sinn Fein at at least 45 because not only will they win the seats they had the votes for this time, but FF and FG will fall to boot

We are into dangerous territory if we have a repeat of short run Governments

- the State is deeply divided

- & no one Party can secure a commanding presence

Its clear for the sake of Democracy that FF & FG should merge

- and those at least nominally to the Left of that should do likewise

However that will probably take another decade

We are in for a bumpy ride.....:driving-emoji:
