Letters to the Editor

It has been almost three weeks since the election, and in that period we have been subjected to a prolonged theatrical circus of game-playing, shadow-boxing shenanigans by our politicians, with many of them acting like spoiled, overgrown school children to gain political advantage at our expense.

Based on media reports, Fine Gael appears to be more amenable to a coalition with Fianna Fáil than Fianna Fáil is.

Despite the diversionary avoidance tactics being staged by Fianna Fáil in particular, unfortunately such an arrangement is the only combination to command a majority with similar policies and political ethos.
