    Default TUI throw down the gauntlet. How will FF play it?

    The government is under serious pressure now. Given their declaration that they would legislate for paycuts how will FF play their own hand? Will they say that it is in the national interest or will they see if the government will crack and pile on the pressure? Are FF ready for a snap election? How do you see FF manage the situation?

    There will be no snap election. FG will do everything possible to be in power in 2016.

    Agree , they will bottle it and concede to every demand on Croke Park 2 , as Quinn said today they will just go after front line services instead, those effected then don't have near the same clout as the unions.

    It would be a tricky one for FF alright , as they would want to heap pressure on the Government but at the same time I reckon
    the majority of the public would rather the Government just took the unions head on at this stage, and I don't think FF would want a
    snap election just yet either. Immaterial anyway as the Government will not have the stomach to legislate.

    They won't be in power for the Easter celebrations with this Government in 2016.. as the Dail started in March 2011.. it will have to be dissolved before March 2016.. it can only sit 5 years maximum

    If they don't, their overlords in the troika will do it for them.. like they have done in other countries already

    There are no demands in CP2.

    The union delivered no demands.

    The government delivered demand in direct contravention of the Croke Park Agreement.

    You ignorance of these facts mark you out as a moron.

    The latest point at which an election can be called is March 8 2016

    A three week campaign could see the election on 31 March 2016.

    A further three weeks until the new Dáil sits . . And you're talking around Thursday 21 April 2016.....exactly 100 years after Good Friday 1916
