McGrath really creeps me out, something about him doesn't sit right, like.

He is not leadership grade but he is a very hardworking TD. All about the economy for McGrath.

Wow a politician that is all about the economy, strange considering it is the bedrock for everything else

Will Michael Martin be the first Fianna Fail leader not to be elected as Taoiseach ?
Martin is the last surviving minister from the Bertie Ahern era. That's not good for his C.V..

The 8th will probably be repealed and that'll probably give him political capital to stay in charge as he has sided with the pro choice side.

Its Aherns legacy that has made it difficult for Big Micky.

Yep, anyone linked directly to Bertie is seen by a lot of the electorate as dubious. Mickey will struggle against that. The sheeple have generally short memories but the damage done by Bertie and Co was so bad that the stink just won’t wash off fully.

Leo is flying it. What reason is there to vote FF in the next election whenever it will be if it serves to simply maintain a confidence and supply government? Because FF will not be the biggest party, not the way MM is leading it (or keeping it in cryostasis).
