The Soldiers of Destiny well ahead of Family of Ireland

Or using the more familiar names, Fianna Fail is ahead of Fine Gael in the opinion polls on other side of the Irish Sea. I will admit to having to check which is which every once in a while, with FF being /historically/ the more left leaning one if not really any more. As a rule, our lot get on better with their lot when FG is in charge in part because of the huge weight of historical baggage from the 20s and 30s

Judging from this Wikipedia item, FF has as much trouble trying to work out who to sit with in Strasbourg as the Tories. If memory serves, FF bends over backwards to avoid being bracketed with my lot, so stand by for them trying to join the EPP if Cameron does cobble something together with the Czechs, even though FG is already in the EPP. Confused? You will be.

Bedad!

I see Wiki reckons FF are "radical, slightly left of centre".

I'm "moderate, extreme right-wing" meself.

I see the Greens may hold the balance between FF/Pd & FG/Lab.
If theyre anything like the British fake-Greens, they'll talk only to the Shin Feigners.

Bjasus! Vendredi 13....
