    Default C& S agreement extended until 2020

    Fianna Fáil guarantees no election in 2019 amid Brexit uncertainty as it extends confidence and supply arrangement - Independent.ie

    Compared to what's happening in the UK this makes us look organised. Good news I think.
    This will allow stability and confidence throughout the Brexit ermmmm.. process.. and allow the passing of another budget.
    You happy with this?

    Default No election until 2020 as FF renew C&S deal

    Well, speculation on a May 2019 GE seems to be out the window now as FF announce that they will ensure another year of confidence and supply:

    FF renews Confidence and Supply Agreement

    Ireland was in a period of heightened danger over fears created by a hard Brexit and the risk of a no deal outcome had risen dramatically, he told the Dil.

    Circumstances had changed and everybody had a duty to respond, Mr Martin said.
    He's pretending to be annoyed, but my feeling is he must be delighted.
    Let us consider the Serapeum of Alexandria.

    An affront to democracy. FF and FG are the biggest threats to our continued stability and by keeping themselves in place, leave themselves open for the inevitable protests and action that will occur in the coming years in response to Brexit, Gilets Jaunes, etc. And it will happen.

    Budget 2019, lest we forget, was the eleventh consecutive austerity budget and there's only so much we can take

    Probably the right thing for the country. Maybe not the right thing for FF and it may put Martin's position at threat if they don't do well in the Locals.

    Good for Labour, who desperately needed the GE after the Locals just so they could drum up some candidates.

    Bad for the alphabets, who had a high-point at the last locals and will appear to have backward momentum come a GE.

    Probably doesn't mean much for FG, SF or Indos.

    Right call. An election in the spring of 2020 gives important certainty given the circus across the pond

    The Capitulation and Servitude agreement is obviously being pushed as guaranteeing stability. However, once the Brexit situation is resolved, the FF backbenchers may get restless especially if they see SF gaining at FF's expense.

    The Local Elections will be telling as they can't be passed off as a bad opinion poll is.
