    The Green Party will support the Finance Bill to give effect to the measures announced in Budget 2011, despite its decision to pull out of Government.

    Party leader John Gormley said the "on-going saga" in relation to the Fianna Fáil leadership had been a total distraction from the business of Government and was still not resolved.

    "The Irish people have begun to lose confidence in politics and in the political process," he said.

    Mr Gormley said the party regretted that other key pieces of legislation which had been championed by the Greens - a reference to the Climate Change Bill and legislation governing corporate donations to political parties in particular - would not now pass through the Dáil in the lifetime of this Government.

    It's such a mess that I fear any half-decent canditate who might previously have thought of running will probably decide to give it a miss.

    We will probably end up with complete dross running for election now.

    And, yeah, before anyone else says it, how will we know the difference?

    Well having the election sooner rather then later is probably a good thing .
    I don't think the greens had much choice but to pull the plug.
    What next we are going through some very difficult and changing times at the moment.
    Who would have believed 4 years ago the mess were are in know today.

    Like I suggested before we should create our own "E-I Party" to run in government!!!

    Patricia would be Taoiseach. Blond Chick Nikky minister for Sex. Doozer minister for Justice. Westside minister for the arts and entertainment. EP minister of information. Carlos minister for foreign politics. Luther minister for... boring paperwork. I would be minister for food, health and the environment.
