Fianna Fáil sets out its stall

 

Sir, – Every month or so, it seems, Micheál Martin publicly promises that Fianna Fáil will not go into coalition with Sinn Féin.

The fact that he says this so regularly makes me suspect that few Irish people actually believe it. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Fianna Fáil has declared that it will never enter a coalition agreement with Fine Gael. That will come as a terrible disappointment to those who lined up on the Fianna Fáil benches and supported the recent Government budget.

The emperor’s new clothes? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – “An Ireland for All”? More like “An Ireland for Fianna Fáil”! – Yours, etc,
