Well?

What political careers are toast? Harris? Might LV stab Franny Fitz in the back?

Eoghan Murphy for chief whip?

Any surprises to look out for?

How will FF react?

What for Coveney?

What will become of public sector pay talks?

Will this move FG to the right?

A big poll bounce for FG.

A snap election in the Autumn.

The end of Mehole.

Martin is a good election campaigner, I also don't think most Irish people will be too happy with another election less than 2 years after the previous election.

SiL, would it be fair to say that you don't like the Blueshirts?

With Leo and Pascal at the helm, Hell will freeze over before a penny will be given to that bunch....
When Leo spoke of those people who get up early in the morning, he didn't mean the PS, methinks...

His OP is just a series of questions. I don't infer any actual analysis or position.

Good! And a lot of middle-class private sector workers will think likewise.

Pascal for Finance and Coveney for Foreign Affairs and possibly Tanaiste.

He seriously needs to get rid of Noreen O'Sullivan first or he will regret it.

FF won't be happy. Polls show Leo would give FG a 9% boost compared to now where they are already ahead of FF in some polls even with Enda.

Leo is a public servant.

FG on 36%+ translates into 60+ seats......

Will they still think it when they're striking?
I would. If there has to be a showdown, choose the most bolshie union out there and smash them.

ASTI or the NBRU would be my choice.
