I see that the Fianna Fáil/PD government (Axis of Evil) is on the verge of meltdown. It seems that Bertie's little brown envelopes are causing quite a few problems. It is being reported on Slugger and on Politics.ie that the Government is on the verge of collapsing.
At the moment they all seem to running around like headless chickens, the blind leading the blind almost. If Bertie does fall on his sword, which would be a novel new concept for a Fianna Fail TD, then that really will put the cat amongst the pigeons.
Will the Government be able to stay on in its current composition of PD and Fianna Fail?
Will any future Fianna Fail leader decide that now is the time to cut the PD's loose and go it alone with the support of independents?
I really don't believe that there is much chance of a general election because neither of the Government parties would in much position to fight one.
McDowell is only leader a week and the Government falls apart, I suppose the big man upstairs does listen to your prayers after all.
