    Default DBN.. Is this Richard Bruton's Swansong?

    If we are to believe that there could be a GE in the next year or so,
    Will this the last hurrah for Richard Bruton?
    Will he have one last match?
    Can FG DBN survive if he was to retire?

    I'd say Bruton will be Fine Gael's John McCain. He'll be there until they carry him out on stretcher.

    Thanks! I figured it out soon after posting-hence the post deletion.

    I would say both are fairly decent folk. I came across Dicky once and he was absolutley tiny!

    True RB isn't very tall but is a nice bloke as FG types go.

    If that is the calibre of replacement I'd say they will keep running RB even if they have to do it "weekend at bernies" style.

    If Richard has his way, his replacement is not yet born.
    [edit: he's 64 and he has been in Oireachtas since 1981 and TD since 1982 - so maybe he doesn't want to hang around forever)

    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.
