Fianna Fáil have made a remarkable comeback in General Election 2016. That Phoenix has risen from the ashes which is also something the Labour Party should take some solace and comfort in.
However, with leading figures such as Niall Collins and Timmy Dooley from Fianna Fáil ruling out an arrangement with Fine Gael it looks like the country will be heading to the polls sooner rather than later. It is obvious ‘Fianna Gael’ should be the basis of the next Government. These two large parties could very well find themselves punished by the electorate if we are forced to the polls again soon. Not only are the public election weary but they expect their newly elected public representatives to work together and just get on with it — the same way they had to over the last few difficult years.
In other works our newly elected TD’s need to stop throwing the toys out of the pram, play nicely together and put their country before their party.
Failure to do so could mean the public choosing parties or individuals who will!
