    Ah the man who lost the FF whip, not for their actions since 2007, not because of the economic Armageddon that has been visited by his party on his constituents - no, basically he lost it voting against a bill aimed at a Stag Hunt in North Dublin.

    Class act.

    If that's the case, we'll be opening an Independent Fianna Fail Forum.

    Mattie has pulled out a big stick to bate Brian Lenihan with:

    Announcing his decision to stand as an independent in the General Election, Mr McGrath said the party seemed to be protecting the rich and crucifying ordinary people.

    In a scathing attack on the leadership, he said Taoiseach Brian Cowen snubbed him while Mr Lenihan reneged on a deal they struck over bankers' bonuses and social welfare cuts.

    Indeed we can't have all these FF people who voted Ta all the way, in the course of FF destruction of this Country to suddenly disconnect themselves from what they have done.

    Agree 1000%

    And would like to add that this fellow should not be re-elected and people should not vote for him. He was a member of FF/a FF TD and FF have destroyed the country. Just as tainted as the rest of them.

    Sadly things in this country do not follow logically when it comes to politics. So the chances of McGrath being re-elected are presumably quite alive.
