The next election could well leave a hung Dail between FF & the prospective Rainbow. With Rabbitte determined to keep Labour away from FF at all costs, SF may well hold the balance of power.
Much of the centre right middle class will be apoplectic at the prospect of a Fianna Fail/Sinn Fein coalition. Fianna Fail may well be worried about how its own soft middle class vote will react. The Fine Gael base will be terrified at the prospect at a FF/SF government and FG may well see it in its heart to dust of the “Tallaght Strategy” in “the National Interest” and give a minority FF government conditional FG support.
The question for FF people is:
Given the choice between FF/SF or FF/FG which would you choose and why? (& you can't cheat saying FF overall majority etc.)
