I may be a bit previous, but I assume that most of us on here are committed to voting, but, since there is so much chat about the need for political change, how will you vote?
I am trying to ascertain how those, like me, who desperately want to get away from clientism and all it implies, will be voting, in the hope of getting change.
Personally I don't hold out much hope for change, we'll get promises, even committments, but action??
I won't waste my franchise so I'll be voting Labour 1, in the hope they'll get enough seats in a coalition to have some influence on future actions. I don't know yet whether I'll vote further down the page.... I think FG won't move on clientism or Dail reform, SF may well say they will, but they won't be in Gov., and anything else is a waste of the franchise. Personal opinion.
