Electorate learning the cost of voting for issues, not policies

It appears from the recent General Election that the Irish people have delivered a "right mess" for the country.
The problem is that a large number of the 158 elected representatives want to remain in Opposition rather than take on the responsibility of participating in government.
The media and political commentators continue to insist that the responsibility to put a new government together rests with the two largest parties, namely FG and FF, to negotiate a grand coalition or some form of minority government supported by a group of Independents/small parties.
