According to the former Tanaiste, the current minority-led Government will not last the whole of 18 months.
He said “I think where it will come unstuck is when there will be a crisis in a hospital or a crisis in the gardai or some probably very small thing that will get a lot of public attention and media attention and a storm will build up and it’s the small thing I think will cause the problem and will trigger a confidence vote that will take it down,” he said.
He predicted the current coalition would only last for 12 to 18 months,”
“Parties in opposition can be put under public pressure as well to pull the trigger and I think at some stage that will happen. It’s hard to predict what the issue will be.”
