    Honestly, about as much as I think of Michael Martin.

    Good luck to her.
    Brexit comes straight from hell. Everywhere it goes it causes disharmony, turbulence and misery. I think Brexiteers themselves must have some form of mental illness.

    I suppose that's one way of distancing SF from it's old hunger striker days.

    ML will rip Michael Martin apart. FF will be bricking it.

    A SF/FG coalition is on the cards.

    Gut feeling is that she will move quickly to get the Assembly up and running again

    - will be curious how she handles the Abortion thing down here...

    As the whiff of gun powder shifts rapidly Downwind

    - she should be in Prime Position to lift the Party out of the Doldrums

    - and into a Coalition with FF

    Time will tell of course but its all to play for....
    If you can convince a People to engage in the mass elimination of their own offspring - you can probably get them to do anything...http://irelandinhistory.blogspot.ie/

    Serving under Leo alright. Social protection I bet. But SF to have health alright.

    I'm not a shinner myself, but I think this is a move in the right direction for the party. Mary Lou is a bright, capable woman and if it encourages the old guard to retire it will be a good thing.
