In brief: Dailocracy . . . Don't scrap scrappage. . . Big John

This Dail's mandate will end in 2012. A four-year budget strategy will run till 2015. Is this Republic a democracy (demos -- people) or a Dailocracy?

Consensus: 'general agreement' (Oxford dictionary). General agreement on a four-year budget strategy requires a general election.

So, if there is to be general agreement, can I look forward to giving Fianna Fail some real national consensus with a peann luaidhe in the ballot box in Fuerty NS before Christmas?
