    Default Dail Numbers and Votes

    The 1st vote tonight was won 81-75 in the Government's favour. I'm looking at the numbers.

    Government:
    FF 70
    WL-FF 4 - (Whipless) Devins, Scanlon, McDaid, mattie mcgrath
    GR 6
    Ind 3 - Harney, Lowry & JHRae
    Total = 83

    CC = 1 ( total=84), Vacancies = 3 (total=87)

    Opposition:
    FG 51
    Lab 20 (inc Broughan - still whipless????)
    SF 4
    Ind 4 (Joe Behan, O'Sullivan, McGrath, Noel Grealish)
    Total = 79 (total=166) or in real terms 83 vs 79

    Of the 81-75, Michael Martin and Mary Coughlin are paired.. but that should make it 81 - 77... I guess McGarth & O'Sullivan up to their tricks again. Never thought I'd say it, but fair play to Noel Grealsh.

    How do people see the numbers playing out on Health votes?

    I don't understand what the 85 and 88 are about in brackets, but otherwise you are spot on.

    EDIT: You forgot Mattie among whipless wonders.

    And 77-81 was the result on the By-election writs.

    Worth saying, Mattie McGrath voted for the gov against the by-elections. Minutes later....

    Independent TD Mattie McGrath is forecasting the Fianna Fáil-Green Party coalition will not survive until next summer.

    The Tipperary South deputy - who lost the Fianna Fáil whip for voting against the Government - believes the Budget and Finance Bill will prove too tricky.

    He is refusing to say if the Taoiseach Brian Cowen can count on his support any more - which would depend on the retention of acute services at the South Tipperary General Hospital.

    We had Dublin TDs complaining recently about closing a swimming pool. Closing a Dublin pool means at worst 2 bus trips to the next one. Closing regional hospitals means people suffer and die.

    I think McGrath is generally a mouthy twat but he's right to do what he can to protect essential services.
