    Default Longford Westmeath - how could it go next time ?

    Looks like things will stay the same with FF's Robert Troy, FG's Peter Burke, LP's Willie Penrose and Boxer Moran of Ross's Indos. But for those of you down there, can you see any change when the next general election is called ?

    I can see Penrose losing his seat and Labour definitely won't hold the seat If Penrose doesn't run again.

    Penrose has held it since 1992, if he wasn't kicked out the last time he wouldn't be. He's 61, I'd say there's a few runs left in him yet.

    That depends on whether Labour is able to revive nationally, they are still stagnant under Howlin.

    Can't see it as there is no space for him as there is a FG, FF, de facto FG/FF in Moran of Ross's Indos. An SF candidate might have an outside chance and that's about it.

    There will be no Labour revival, that political space has been taken over by SF, Indos4Change, PBP/AAA.

    I see a second seat for FF as Boxer Morans support will ebb away and return home.

    Boxer's well publicised activity on the flooding issues will insulate him from any drift away from indos.

    TheLord Ross connection may not be much of an advantage
