No Pardon for the Soldiers of Destiny
The FF miracle is, like the Catholics, the faithful remain, blind to the abuses of the leaders.
The latest opinion polls continue to reveal a decline in support for Fianna Fáil, traditionally Ireland’s most successful political party. Disapproval of the coalition FF/Green Government’s performance is at 84%, a staggering indicator of dissent. Yet FF – the Soldiers of Destiny - retain support from some 20% of the electorate. Apparently not all who are dissatisfied will vote against the party.
This is understandable as Fianna Fáil, for its rump of supporters, is as much a belief system as a political party. The current incarnation of the party - pro privatisation, pro "open" economy, sustained by donations from developers and speculators – is completely different from the original ideals and policies of the post revolutionary party founded in the 1920s.
