Early reports of the latest poll findings, this time from Milward Brown. No major falls, surges etc, though SF are back in the kind of territory they had inhabited in polls last year, at 19%.

Irish Examiner Report - Milward Brown Poll 18/05/13

The poll measures attitudes on the abortion issue as well as party support, with a majority still supportive of the inclusion of the threat of suicide in legislation, though this is down from 58% to 53% since the last comparable poll.

There is still 12% that would vote Labour, my god.
Frankly that over a quarter of the people would vote for the Bastids that landed us in the mess is more of a worry.

The conclusions of this poll - the people need at least three new political parties, to compete directly with the three ring circus dominating Irish politics.

FF FG government then 2016 :)
The only chance of a properly-functioning political system for the ordinary people of this state is for the fake centre-right division to be brought to an end. It's a charade, which ensures that either of the two centre-right parties will be in power, either on their own or more likely these days with Labour providing the leg-up to one of them.

That means the business elite can sleep soundly, certain that they'll never be asked to shoulder their fair share of the pain caused by their own lovely boom.

Roll on a FF-FG merger, or at least a coalition.

I disagree. For all the anger at government policies FG remain fairly stable in the mid 20's level. They'll be happy that they're not plummeting in the polls like Labour, who are facing a PD/Greens style meltdown.

I'd like to see one centre-right party, one centre-left, and then a number of parties of more radical positions - followed by an election.
