It is interesting, it it not, to reflect… February 11, 2013Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics.
…on this polling result here that indicates a solid 70 per cent in favour broadly speaking of proposed Government legislation on X (mirroring many polls before it) and then compare and contrast with the apparent timidity of the government (and it would seem FG in particular) on the issue.
Interesting too the following, again which mirrors previous polling over an extended period of time:
Asked a separate question about whether abortion should not be permitted under any circumstances or allowed in certain circumstances, 12 per cent said it should never be permitted, while 85 per cent said it should be allowed in certain circumstances.
Why all the foot-dragging, why all the very public wrestling with conscience. Why indeed one might ask is it that a disproportionate number of FG TDs seemingly are more anti-abortion provision (at least rhetorically) than those they purport to represent?
