If the exit poll in Midlands/North-West is correct, then by the middle of next week Mairead McGuinness will be the most in-demand woman in Europe. An obvious potential President of the European Parliament (a role she's been eyeing up for a while) - but, how about back home? McGuinness could at a stroke solve FG's biggest demographic worries, namely women and rural voters, whose support for FG has been drifting downwards since Varadkar became leader and FG basically lost its rural face. But would she do it? You'd have to assume she'd insist on being made deputy leader and added to the ticket in Louth, and realistically she'd either hold marginals or nail down gains for FG in virtually every constituency across Midlands/NW, and probably a few further south too. But is Varadkar prepared to a) demote Coveney after the great job he's done on Brexit; and b) add a genuine leadership rival to domestic politics, rather than having her safely out of the picture in Brussels?
