    Default Grealish hints at possibility of new Govt- update: withdraws support !

    It seems one of FFs backers in the guise of former PD Noel Grealish has suggested the possibility of a GE / new government / his support in vote of no confidence in government.

    Independent TD calls for new Government | BreakingNews.ie

    Update: Grealish Withdraws Support - http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/g...nt-474917.html


    He has criticised the money being poured into banks while health services continue to crumble. This would appear to be a swipe also at his former party leader Mary Harney, Minister for Health.

    Could this latest recruit to the anti-FF camp open the possibility of this years budget in December not being passed?? and therefore force a January 2011 General Election??

    He still hasn't said he's withdrawing his support for the FF government though!

    Backbenchers getting nervous? Will there be a rush for the door to be first to claim the credit of bringing down an unpopular government.
    Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.

    considering that this gov has been unpopular for some time now, this has got to be the slowest rush to the door ever

    Typical gombeen politician.
    Only concerned when it affects his backdoor.

    If FG don't get a majority(very unlikely) than we will continue to pour money into the HSE based on previous years budgets rather than real requirments.

    The usual, speaking out of both sides of this mouth. When it comes to a vote he will still vote for the government.

    Noel trying to nail his seat.

    One thing is now almost certain, if Cowen goes we have a general election.
    There simply is not enough votes anymore for a third FF Taoiseach with three declared now against the idea.
    Even with the CC that leaves them in 81-82 territory.

    I'd watch someone with a rock solid safe seat to pull the plug this weekend.
    John Mc Guinness would be my guess.
