    McWilliams got it right those years ago. He continues to make a few bob out of it. Good Luck to him. I wonder is he predicting the same now?

    I suppose I'm similar in that my view on Irish political parties vary from "Bleh" to "Hell, No!". There is no party in this country that I actually want to vote for. When it comes to election time, I'm a negative voter. Start with the ones I dislike least, and work my way down the card selecting the ones I can tolerate in the hopes that transfers will keep out the "Hell, No!" grouping.

    I suppose I tend not to post sufficiently in political threads to have registered on the pinkometer

    Apologies Seagull, you should of course have been measured. But you are right the Pinkometer barely twitched as your recent posts were fed into it. Looks like a perfect 0 but there was a warning message that due to paucity of data the rating may be unreliable.

    While Ml McGrath is a nice fella, I'm totally dis-illusioned with FF (as a former voter - a good few elections back) - the reason being is they appeared to have learned nothing and are willing to push the populism button if they can score points on FG. This water thing sickens my stomach. The hard left have nowhere to lead us - remember when they couldnt get enough of yer man in Greece, hows that working out I wonder......

    I think Ireland will hold the line on tax harmonization, it needs unanimity, we've long warned we're using the veto and while UK was a supporter its by no means the only one. The Baltics for instance are low tax. Politicians making election promises arent much to be worried about tbh.

    I'm a -7 btw

    Betsy the young one I couldn't agree more. I put you through the pinkometer and got a -3 which starts to make me doubt whether the Duke merits a perfect 0.:oops:
