IT seems that we currently don’t have enough political parties in Northern Ireland.
This became clear a couple of years back when the Tories arrived, albeit linking up with the UUP.
Still the feeling persisted to nag at political commentators that we simply don’t have enough political parties.
But, don’t fret, there is another one joining the fray! Fianna Fail has turned up with a new office in Crossmaglen. Okay, if you live in Northern Ireland you can’t technically vote for Fianna Fail, but hey it’s the thought that counts.
And, I’m sure that Margaret Ritchie was only kidding when she said that there would be no merger between the SDLP and Fianna Fail ‘on her watch’.
Politics in Northern Ireland – what we really need is not yet more mergers, link ups and new political parties: what we need is an all-night party!
