Fianna Fail: Will think about it, but only if it can see other people too.
The people of Ireland, voting in the Irish presidential election, have asked the former governing Fianna Fail party to forgive them for ousting the party from power in the general election held earlier in the year. Voters gave a clear plurality of votes to unofficial Fianna Fail candidate Sean Gallagher, a former senior officer and fundraiser in the party and defender of the former government’s values, and they’re now standing outside Fianna Fail’s house crying and asking to be taken back.
Fianna Fail has responded by saying that the Irish people will need to work harder than that to be forgiven, but will think about it, provided the Irish people are cool about Fianna Fail seeing other property developers and bankers, and is willing to put out its national sovereignty for Fianna Fail when it has a few drinks. It also wants the Irish people to promise that it won’t ask questions about Fianna Fail’s horse gambling “issues”, or its “special” friends.
