    Default Who will replace Enda Kenny in June 07?

    Given most political commentators accept that it is on balance unlikely Fine Gael will be able to form a Government after the next General Election and that in such event Kenny will be forced to retire, who do posters here think will replace him?

    Other than you, who thinks Kenny will be forced to retire when FG fail to get into government? Given their local and European results last year, increasing their seats by a comparatively modest ten or so should be enough to guarantee his safety.

    I think there is still a good chance we'll make up the ground in the next 18 months. The Government seem to becomming more unpopular every day.

    But if we don't make it I'd say Phil Hogan or Richard Bruton will take over. Bruton certainly has the experience for the post.

    In fairness if he doesn't win the election he will have to go, Bertie, Pat and Trevor are in the same boat. If Bertie hadn't won in '97 he would have been shafted long ago.

    I sincerely doubt that Trevor will be ousted if the Greens don't win the election.

    I agree with Varus, the leader of any of the major parties that doesn't get his party into government or seriously increase their seats will probably go.

    Defo can't see Ahern or Harney staying on, Kenny and Rabbitte are in the same boat. The Greens are so slow they probably won't even realise they've lost the election!
