You really couldn't make it up, could you? The Soldiers of Destiny get a chance to go into government and turn back the clock of history by forming a historic partnership with the old enemy; instead, the whole proposition is dismissed in 15 minutes.

A word to the wise in Leinster House - voters didn't vote for 'no government'.

Fianna Fáil can bang on until the cows come home about keeping promises made to their voters; in the real world, such promises are off after the people have voted. The priority then has to be to form a government. Preferably a stable one, one that can take on the massive hurdles we face over the next few years.
