I have seen almost endless letters on this page since the last election, most of them a variation on the theme of 'stop wasting time and form a government or else call a new election'.

It seems to have especially upset many of your correspondents that the people of Ireland elected so many Independents, as they lay some of the blame for the current impasse on this fact.

Presumably, your correspondents voted for one of the main parties rather than Independents, or they wouldn't have as much to complain about.
