It seems to me being in Fianna Fail is a lot like being in a religion. And like a religion it’s hard to leave. So what does a TD or Senator do when they have a difference of opinion with the party? They become Independent Fianna Fail. Is this the answer for Catholics who still subscribe to the principles of their religion but want to express their disdain for the organisation and its failings? Style themselves as Independent Roman Catholic. And it could be a bit like moving from a contract phone to Pay as You Go – make a contribution when they go to mass and pay for any ceremonies needed like weddings, funerals etc.
