Ending up where we were heading — 2 Comments

  1. Creighton scares me; the way she talked about a “Movement”, politics having failed in Ireland and her very conservative attitude to social issues combined with her attack on Trade Unions in an Irish Independent article before the 2011 general election reminded me of Franco’s Falange.

    On the differences between Fine Gael and Fianna Fail – while there may be little between them, in general they get their votes from different sections of society. Fianna Fail votes in many cases come from people who, in other countries, would have voted Labour.

  2. I don’t think Creighton will have any impact nationally because she has no following locally. The de-politicisation process has reached the point where many people will simply vote for those who promise change in their own backyard.
