Ms McDonald said it was time for the Tánaiste to step aside.

Attention will now turn to Fianna Fáil who are in a confidence and supply arrangement with Fine Gael. If they seek Ms Fitzgerald’s resignation it could spark a general election in the days before Christmas. lol lol lol lol lol lol lol

A Long Shot .Mick tells Leo the gig is up .Leo goes on the Radio or Telly says .That the constant sniping from SF and numerous votes of confidence put down by them and defeated is leading to instability and delay in important government work .To provide strong government especially in the lead up to Brexit Leo has decided to call a general election for the Friday before Christmas .(This gets the Irish Government off the hook when it comes to objecting to Phase two of the Brexit negotiation going ahead as they can say there was no irish government in place at the time .Then I can claim me few grand in time for the Leopardstown Races .

long shot rodent but Leo might decide now is the time to actually be elected taoiseach ,its a numbers game unless there is a cupboard full of skeleton hidden somewhere .My best guess is Leo goes for it ,better to be seen as leading than having been pushed .

I hope your right John M, but I really doubt it, the news broke just a little too late in the year.
The Dail breaks fer their 4 week Chrimbo holiday in just 3 weeks time and the next debate on
the subject isin't till the 29th Nov.
No way are Irish politicians giving up their Chrimbo break fer anything as trivial as a General Election !

@ John M, it's not Even Money, it's about a 100/1 shot.
How your misses lets you out in the morning with cash in your pocket is a mystery to me !

I would take more of your money off you on an Even Money bet, or even at 7/4,
or even at 10/1. But I feel guilty enough already after stealing a Deuce off you this year.

http://www.irishmirror.ie/news/irish-news/politics/politician-labelled-disgraceful-after-calling-11575819

A former Ulster Unionist politician was involved in a spat on social media after describing Taoiseach Leo Varadkar as “the Indian”.

John Taylor, who now calls himself Lord Kilclooney, was replying to a post on Twitter that quoted Simon Coveney wanting a united Ireland in his “political lifetime”.

He tweeted: “Simon Coveney is stirring things up. Very dangerous non statesman like role! Clearly hoping to undermine the Indian.”

In other posts explaining the tweet the life peer claimed the offensive nickname was “shorthand for poof an Indian surname which I could not spell”.
