    Default Who will be leading FF when the Dáil sits again.

    Simple enough question who do you think will be FF leader when the Dáil reconvenes after the summer holiday. I have Lenihan as a shoe-in with either Martin or Ahern or both, challenging him. The only thing to count against him would be the matter of his health. It's resonable to believe the heave will come shortly and the one thing we can say about FF and it's members is that it's party first-party last and that any heave will be quick and bloodless as to not damage the party any further.

    1. Cowan.

    2. Lenihan.

    3. Martin.

    4. Dempsey.

    5. Coughlan.

    6. Hanafin.

    7. Other.

    Martin isn't stupid enough to seek the nomination in the middle of a recession until the green shoots start to sprout, then they will all take a run at the job.

    Lenihan as Taoiseach, after his pandering to the banks, and supplication to Anglo?

    One Finance Minister becoming Taoiseach after another - seriously?

    Not until he's purged his record by the uplift proving him right.

    Then, health permitting, he may be unstoppable.

    I would believe that Cthulu will be in charge.

    It doesn't really matter. It will be same anti-worker policies and agenda of destroying the public sector and punishing the ordinary people for the crimes of the plutocracy.

    Lenihan won't leave finance. Itd be very risky.

    My guess is Hanafin.

    Its 10 days away...It will be Cowen.

    We are all a little surprised at how Enda Kenny tackled his party's revolt...imagine how this lad will handle it???
    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    I still think it will be Cowan.
    The Irish Times poll could be very serious but the party really has no other option.
    If Cowan is determined to stay and if no-one is prepared to put their head above the parapit then the status quo will remain.
