    Irish Election

    Some good electoral news at last!

    Sinn Fein tops the poll (even if they will not end up with the most seats).

    It's possible FF will go into coalition with SF. That's a long way off yet though.
    A second election will give SF more seats, they didn't stand in every constituency and never stood a second candidate.

    I wouldn't yet dismiss FG and FF getting together yet. All are dismissing this. We might go through a charade over the next few weeks only for FG and FF to come up with a 'for the good of the country' line.

    Of course they want a United Ireland. Well, FG say they do.

    Not a great buddy?
    In fairness most of it is well deserved. Brexit, History and ignorance.

    Don't get drawn into the trap all feel negatively about the UK. Most people don't care about the UK. Many others laugh now since Johnson took over. Similar to the way most of us do about Trump.

    SF are more left wing than you think.
    Also, there was a general turn to the left with Soc. Democrats, PBP and Greens.
