    What a silly waste of time. This will actually give political cover to any wavering Labour TDs, giving them an excuse to support the overall performance of the Government, regardless of their disputes on the detail of the Budget.

    Why in God's name didn't they put down a motion on child benefit or the respite allowance?

    Who dreamt up this strategy? It's politically stupid. Absolutely no prospect of success. It's not as if they didn't have a number of tighter issues to go at that could have seriously embarrassed some deputies. This will just turn into a shouting match and the public will just get turned off.

    Shinners obviously don't wish to see the happy couple break up.

    A rather silly motion. All it will achieve is rally government TDs together whereas standing back might have seen a rebellion develop. They should have delayed the motion until after a rebellion developed for maximum impact.

    BTW on a technical issue: it is a woefully worded motion grammatically. There have been tons of no confidence motions over the years. I don't member one worded so badly. It isn't rocket science to word it correctly.
