The Liberal has learned that a vicious internal row is taking place between the government coalition.

An RTE ‘Primetime’ debate due to take place on Tuesday night will see 3 members of both the Yes and No side battle it out.

Originally, Fine Gael’s Leo Varadkar was said to be taking part, but it has emerged that Labour’s Alex White has replaced him.

Labour were said to be furious when they discovered Varadkar was taking part. A deal was reputedly done between Fine Gael and Labour a number of weeks ago which saw Labour having a member on the last debate.

The Labour party allegedly rang RTE and told them Varadkar was being replaced by White. This in turn caused a major internal row between the two parties.

Paddy Manning and Tom Finegan are said to be two of the members of the No side.

This comes to light hot on ths heels of new polls which show there’s a major tightening in the campaign.

Those excluded from the “don’t knows” show the Yes side down to 58%. There is said to be a strong “Silent No” vote making headway across the country. It’s a movement of people afraid to publicly say they’re voting No or confirming it in an opinion poll.
