The leader of the Green Party and Minister for the Environment John Gormley in an interview with Matt Cooper on TodayFM this evening said the government was technically a minority government, given the number of seats it has control of in the Dail.
Indeed . Basically , a half dozen gombeens could turn the country on its head and send us into a tailspin at any time in the next 2 years . Yet we dont need an election !Well, if they're a minority Government then they're admitting that they have no mandate.
They shouldn't be throwing terminology around like that without understanding what it means.
The Government is in power as a shaky coalition that is supported by independents. It's a minority if it loses a vote.
