Quite simply – it’s a disaster for Labour. Its leader Joan Burton is going to lose her seat in Dublin West, almost definitely.
All election week, Burton was running a wayward 5th in the 4 seat constituency, but it now seems this morning that the Tanaiste will finish in 6th place at best.
The 67-yr-old isn’t just about to take a battering herself, the entire Labour party is going to be absolutely smashed today. The people have spoken and they don’t want Labour!
Meanwhile, Enda Kenny’s leadership is in doubt this morning after an underperforming Fine Gael look likely to mix it with Fianna Fail.
