    Interesting development. Could explain why the bond auctions were suspended until the new year.

    She made a lot of sense - if the government have to draw up a four year plan, let it be a government with a mandate from the people. And it would be a good thing to see exactly how each party is planning on bringing down the deficit.

    She also said she would be murdered for saying it!!

    It is exactly why the bond auctions were suspended. FF have done the number crunching, and they know that there now isn't a hope in hell, of getting the Budget through the Dail in December. And, it wont be the Greens will pull it down, it'll be dissident FFers, who will try to claim that they stopped the cuts in the subsequent election. There will be a GE in February, and FG/Lab will have to go to the markets in March, along with raising a very austere budget. Which FF will then attack for years claiming that FG/Lab screwed the country.

    The 80's all over again.

    The 4Year Plan will be their manifesto launch, with Lenihan the nominated candidate for Taoiseach. FG in disarray, Enda unliked. Labour ill prepared on the ground to capitalise on the polls. Purrfect timing.
