Voters will still back our failed politicians

The talks are continuing/have stalled/have failed (delete as appropriate).

Two parties with minuscule manifestos, 'Keep the Taigs out' versus 'Eirinn go brach'.

Parading for the cameras in smart suits and dirty sectarian underwear, they play the culture and identity cards to deluded followers who understand neither.

And the saddest part of this sordid affair: both parties have a mandate; voters who choose to be part of the problem, not part of the solution.
