I guess Varadkar will have to concentrate on his own "small" country now, or is it game over for him?

So the tired ould Big Two won't work with Sinn Féin. Blimey, even Paisley managed that. If there has to be another election, let's hope that Sinn Féin won't be caught out again and that they'll put up a lot more candidates. I have a feeling that we're in for an ugly coalition that will serve democracy badly.

ONLY because the main part of Ireland is not in the UK can this political thread go forward. We get too much fighting in these, and here's your official heads-up, this thread will be monitored.

One day there will be a border poll. This result, on top of brexit which upped the ante in both parts of Ireland, not only sharply increases the likelihood of one but also guarantees that a poll will be divisive. The most likely outcome, a narrow victory for one side or the other, could produce a winners/losers syndrome that would restart the Troubles. Didn't brexit do well?

They wanted the "tired ould buggers" out and that is, possibly, what is going to happen. Maybe a bit of more honest and less self serving government is on its way?

But there WILL be border polls, both sides of the border. Gird your loins. Trouble ahead.

The amazing thing is that the Sinn Fein candidates were sent packing in the previous European and Local Government Elections by the very people (their friends and neighbours) who gave them massive majorities last Saturday. Because of those chastening results the party did not field as many candidates as they might have. Many of the candidates that they did put up received enough votes to elect a running mate had one been there.
Any Government organised with SF leading will be up against it from every side. I wish them luck because it is good to shake up the hitherto smug and well established "big two" (as they were)
It was the younger people who decided that their day had come and the history of SF and the IRA didn't bother most of them, they know so little about it all.
