    Of course, no election has been called. And the likelihood is one won't be this side of christmas.

    The obvious collusion between the economy-wreckers and the organised crime wing of the IRA may appear to signal a dark day in Irish politics and a return to FF cynicism of the past. Indeed, the damage to the Brexit negotiations will be significant. The likelihood of a hard border increases, and the position of the DUP will harden further (if that is possible).

    However, one should remain sanguine. SF will be eager to toady up to Brussels and Berlin, proper little West Krauts that they are, and little will change apart from some populist taxpayers'-money-wasting initiatives around fake news stories such as "homelessness".

    While the next government will surely be FF/SF, Varadkar will land some very, very heavy blows on these guys over the next few weeks. The electorate have come to associate FF with economic collapse, and FG with economic prosperity. FG have never had a leader as smart or effective as him, nor has FF ever had a leader as weak and ineffective as Martin.

    This senseless election is a product of manifest collusion between Martin and FF. This will come back to haunt them both.
    Eh yeah, that's probably right. Martin is in collusion with himself and his colleagues so he is.

    I think you could put out a premise that FF are colluding with FG because they're looking at the polls and SF are at a low ebb, so an election now might suit FFG before SF make some gains via a new leader boost.

    I was in the pub last night with a rather large crowd and I was verry surprised at the anti FF and SF sentiment there.
    A crowd of multis and sock puppets doesn't constitute a large crowd
