It is exactly why the bond auctions were suspended. FF have done the number crunching, and they know that there now isn't a hope in hell, of getting the Budget through the Dail in December. And, it wont be the Greens will pull it down, it'll be dissident FFers, who will try to claim that they stopped the cuts in the subsequent election. There will be a GE in February, and FG/Lab will have to go to the markets in March, along with raising a very austere budget. Which FF will then attack for years claiming that FG/Lab screwed the country.Interesting development. Could explain why the bond auctions were suspended until the new year.
When you hear someone from FF essentially saying they want out of office, you know something horrendous must be coming.On Sam Smyth's Sunday Supplement show earlier today Fianna Fail TD Mary O'Rourke said that there should be a General Election before Christmas.

My guess is they realise the IMF/ European Cental Fund bailout is inevitable and don't want to go down in history as the party that was in power when it happened.
F**king rats and sinking ships come to mind !
