The Phoney war is over.
For the last year, the major political parties have been growling at each other, but all knowing too well that no one had any intention of doing anything that would cause the government to collapse before the referendum.

Now that that's out of the way, and no doubt, everyone (including Renua) will try to cash in somewhat on the result, everyone will be looking at what's the best path to improve their fortunes.

First at foremost, there will be an election this year.

For the next couple of months, we'll have the game of FF and FG doing their best to be able to hang the other as the cause for this 'early' election.

Paddypower, is pricing an election this year at 1/2.

Only question is, what will be the issue that will trigger the election? What will be the Archduke Franz Josef assassination equivalent?

Well, I reckon because the sky didn`t fall in as a result of the immense victory of the YES side yesterday, that every one of those in FF/FG/Lab, will be exhaling and realising that they live for another day.

That there will be an election is a given, not just yet tho.

Let's hope not.

We need the people we elected to govern for 5 years to put their heads down and govern for 5 years.

That's what we pay them for.

There's a huge amount of work needs doing.

FF have the most to lose in an election. Half the party coming out against repeal has cast them in the role of ancient misogyinst dinosaurs. Feck it: FG should call the election and wipe them out.

They are just trying to stir up a story, with their name in the middle of it.

Clever morkeshing.

It's not happening. FF well know that SF are now a serious threat after Adam's departure and they are slowly becoming irrelevant. Having Mehole at the helm after the damage he did whilst in power is something people aren't going to forget easily and shows they haven't moved with the times.

It will take months to get abortion legislation passed.

So no election till 2019 unless you want abortion legislation to be a issue.
