Fianna Fáil — no way!

I was really impressed by the ‘radical’ promises and plans unveiled by a party called Fianna Fáil last week. Heady stuff!

Put them in and all would be solved. It’s a pity this party did not have a chance to govern us before now. We would have no housing crisis, no health crisis, no banks’ crisis, and a booming economy.

Oops! How forgetful of me! They were in power most of the time for the past 80 years and presided over many debacles.

The culmination was the last Fianna Fáil administration when they and their cronies bankrupted our country.

They have some brass neck asking us to vote for them again. Fianna Fáil — no way !
