Given the ongoing row about the government's Strategic Communications Unit, especially Deputy Martin's somewhat grandiose description of the unit as 'a danger to democracy', it appears that what life was left in the Confidence and Supply is draining away faster than the snow in Kildare.

As such, it seems increasingly certain that the planned review of the agreement at the end of this year will be short and sharp, and that the deal will run only long enough to see budget measures passed, with a GE being called in January or February of next year, with voting in Feb/March. The timing is unfortunate, given the likelihood that the UK will crash out of the EU during or immediately after the campaign.

Still, all good fun for those of us who prefer an Election to an All Ireland Final. Anoraks, get your spreadsheets ready, we have a year or so to prepare ourselves.

You should have just said 'no'. Think of the time you would have saved.

That's your subjective view, and you're entitled to it. The polls and the terms of the deal say otherwise.

So when did "the people" appoint you as their spokesperson?

And how come the most recent opinion polls appear to indicate that "the people" are broadly in favour of both the government and its unelected (sic) leader?

Could you link us to the sources of your arguments, please? (And note that a piece of electric wire running from a calculator up your back passage isn't generally regarded as a reputable source.)
