It’s looking very likely that the two biggest political parties in Ireland will be going back into government together.
Everyone may be concerning and talking about coronavirus, but Ireland still does not have a result from election 2020 and there still needs to be a new government formed in the coming weeks.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. The old adage rings true yet again, as it has emerged today that the Fianna Fail and Fine Gael might sign a ‘joint government policy’ in just a few days time.
Using the Covid-19 pandemic as a very timely and convenient rallying call for ‘unity’ for the sake of the Motherland, the same two parties that have had a white-knuckled grip on power for the last century or so now look almost certain to uphold the status quo, despite Sinn Fein’s resounding popular victory in the recent general election.
If the Fine Gael & Fianna Fail travesty comes to pass, the role of Taoiseach would be a ‘rotating’ one, with the two top boys (who were referred to as Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum by Mary Lou McDonald during a televised election debate) would take turns at the helm.
