    There really is no credible alternative - the rest are just as bad - sometimes even worse.

    The question was what would FF campaign on and I think that not having anything positive they will opt for scaring the ***** out of potential FG voters.

    The economy should have at least levelled out by the next GE. FF will then try to sell the preceding 5 years as 'Global crisis caused the recession. FF tough decisions have us on the mend." then they'll ask if after all the pain we've taken do we really want to risk the recovery by making the gaffe prone, inexperienced Kenny, Taoiseach.

    They know they're in for a big hit but they'll want to limit the losses so they stay in with a chance of coalition with Lab.

    If the dust settles then they can easily crow about how they pulled us out of a global recession and how it would be foolish to change the crew now - better sticking with the devil you know - than risking it now just as things are coming together.

    That would work you know.

    ... if Kenny falls on his sword .... or off his bike, how long would it take for Fiann Fail to come up with a different election strategy ? Fianna Fail could run with your strategy NOW ....

    I predict a May General Election .....

    Right now the arse is dropping out of our world. Voters are facing unemployment, pay cuts, tax hikes, reduced services and negative equity and they're blaming FF. It would be hard to persuade them that things could get worse with Miley Byrne as Taoiseach and Gay Byrne as Finance minister. If things have stabilised by the GE the voters will see themselves as having something to lose again. And when someone has something to lose you can frighten him.

    Short of enforcing heroin addiction on your kids, there is little else FF could do to Ireland.

    Pure Scum. This needs to be visciously rammed home next time we get a ballot.

    I just hope people stand up for themselves this election. Surely by now they can't deny that FF are nothing less than pillaging pirates. I can't see a peaceful future for Ireland if FF remain in power.

    I think FF will fall below Labour, I really do, the core FF vote that is left is very shakey and mainly quite elderly in my personal experience. The NAMA thing has shocked people to the core, if the delay an election by another year they are destroyed.

    I cannot believe a back bencher actually attacked the regulaor for being English and evoked the dead generrations against him. That really struck me as desperation. FF have never been a party of bigotry.
    Fianna Fáil TD Ned O'Keeffe declared that the regulator was not giving the banks enough space to get their houses in order.



    If given time, Ned said, "they won't be depending on the state and Mr Elderfield to tell us what to do. We don't want foreigners in here. Michael Collins, Liam Lynch, Pádraig Pearse and James Connolly wouldn't have those foreigners running our business."

    Very well predicted Xray ... not only can you see through things you can also see the truth of things.

    How ever Fianna Fail are not going without a fight. They've just issued a leaflet in praise of Conan .... sorry Cowen:

    FF is in meltdown. The TDs may want to make a fight of it, but the local machine is not there.
