Boris the buffoon, or Fianna Fail f**kwits?

There is much amusement in Ireland – albeit slightly nervous amusement – at the spectacle currently playing out in British politics.

A referendum that the winners didn’t want to win. A new PM and a surprising Foreign Secretary. Boris the buffoon is now one of the most senior members of the British Government and will be facing off against Britain’s allies and adversaries in a critical period. It’s funny and scary in equal measure.

Yet the amusement in Ireland obscures a truth that is scary without the funny side. Fianna Fail, perennial economy and life wreckers, are back at the top of the popularity stakes in Ireland.

Anyone looking east with amusement needs to concentrate on the idiocy closer to home.

Stockholm syndrome has nothing on what the Irish electorate seems to be able to do. Falling in love with your kidnapper is easier to understand than falling in love with this mob.
