Please excuse my extended absence. It was entirely due to a lack of motivation on my part as well as a busy work schedule.
I thought I’d post tonight on the forthcoming elections south of the border.
Today’s RED C Sunday Business Post survey is of interest and, combined with all the recent polls leads me to think that the formation of the next 26 county government is in the gift of the Fianna Fail Party.
The Results of the Poll are:
I think the actual election results will be pretty close to this outcome (barring “events” of course) Naturally the actual number of seats won will determine the outcomes.
Now as I see it Fianna Fail have 3 options.
- Opt for opposition on their own allowing Sinn Fein to become the official opposition party in the Dail
- Enter a coalition Government as junior partners to Fine Gael
- Enter a coalition Government as major/junior partners with Sinn Fein
History tells us that political parties will twist, bend and contort whatever is necessary to attain power.
Particularly Fianna Fail.
This could be very interesting.
