Well to say they could get away with ANYTHING might be stretching it a wee bit Mike. But your right that the current main opposition party have lost their way and could easily find themselves being irrelevant to debate in this country. This is especially true as they have nobody of any intelectual stature in the parliamentary party anymore, remember the Q&A favourites of Ivan Brown, Alan Shatter and Alan Dukes?
Sinn Fein are finding out in the North that people like peaceful republicanism much more than violent republicanism. If they ever get decent candidates in the South who knows what might happen.
