Well - it's been a while since I posted here and we've had an election since. Not much change really - Fianna Fail are still the majority party - but they have got the Green Party in coalition with them along with the 2 Progressive Democrats and a couple of independent TD's (Dail members ) . It will be interesting to see what effect the Green Party will have on policies.
Personally - I voted Labour/Fine Gael. They had a few more "worker" and family friendly policies - and I just didn't trust some of the leading figures in the government - Mary Harney, Bertie Aherne. It could be another 5 years before we get to vote again.
