FG/FF will team up
Sir - So Enda has instructed his party faithful to slag off Micheal Martin at every opportunity (Sunday Independent, October 4). Mr Kenny has instructed his subordinates to invoke a put down used by Harold Wilson about Ted Heath 50 years ago - "a shiver looking for a spine". Well, the hordes of spin doctors he has working for him have once again let him put both feet in it. Does he really think that this type of spiteful drivel is going to win favour with the Irish electorate, especially the undecided voters? Is he not worried that he will have to announce Mr Martin as his Tanaiste in a few months time?
Surely even Enda can see that all the indications point to only one outcome after the election and that is a Fine Gael/Fianna Fail government. God help us, there is no other possible alternative, and the Irish people will get what nearly every democracy in the world has - a parliament of the left and right. At least then we will be able to come down on one side or the other, and not base our vote on what happened on the streets of Dublin 100 years ago.
