Once they get to March, who knows? This is just another stunt to stay in power in the hope that somehow matters will improve.

The longer they stay in the more the chance of civil unrest. Go now.

Just like the by-elections.

And the Greens, one supposes, will now say that mid-january was not a deadline, after all, and they will still support the Government into February.

Exactly, if they do not go soon the streets will run red with blood.:(

Plenty of time for FF to replace their leader and try regroup.

They do not see this as a threat.

Moreover it is worth pointing out that AGS seems to be quite, shall we say, vigorous, in its handling of recent demonstrations. The message is stay away unless you are wearing a helmet, a towel and carrying a big stick.

Will the Greens have the guts to stand up to this, stick to their January deadline and pull out of government in January if an election isn't called?

If they try and stay till March the three outstanding by-elections will have to be held. Bye bye majority.....

Won't get to that.

So much for the Greens ultimatum...
After listening to Eammon Ryan on radio one and Gormless Gormley on six one, with all there dithering, they would be hard put, to organise a piss up in a brewery.

WTF? Gormley said on 6-1 that the Finance Bill would be done early in January to allow for a late January pull-out of government by the Greens as they promised this morning. Has that really changed in 3 hours? Or was Gormley just floundering under Brian Dobson's questioning at 6? I dunno. Chaos.

There will be voilence on the streets if these idiots do not call an election straight away.
Our nation is the laughing stock of the world, RTE have done another about turn and are back supporting FF.
Just go for gods sake go.

Budget 2009 Brian Lenihan, this is the last of the really tough budgets, we have turned the corner. How could you possibly have faith in a man who has got it wrong so many times.

Gormley said he would like to see the process speeded up, but ultmately it is the decision of the Taoiseach to make the announcement.
David Davin-power has just said an end of Jan election is not likely even though that was what the Green's wanted.

Very clear message. Dissent will not be tolerated. A long way from the GRA's comments on a Government of national treachery.

The Dail is on holidays until 19/01. How will the Finance Bill be done in early January, does Gormley reckon?
