    FG leadership heave is go!

    So much at least we can read into tonight's events, with the Irish Times' Fiach Kelly reporting that both Varadkar and Coveney have sought an FG parliamentary meeting next week "to prepare for an early election". Now given that Kenny said he would retire before then, we can take it that both have joined forces to push for a heave:

    Alan (Who?) Farrell released a statement saying he has no confidence in Enda as FG leader. As a semi-Blueshirt it never ceases to amaze me how utterly idiotic FG non-entity backbenchers are. Pat Deering is at least parliamentary party vice-chairman... but still a non-entity.

    We all know it's between Leo (who would murder FF) and Simon (who's too nice). And we all know that they're far too good to get into the bother of having a heave (again). They'll carve it up among themselves. Go to Enda and it will be all nice. Even the way the two are talking you know that the machines are working with the Taoiseach in the background to get the handover done as smoothly as possible.

    So why these idiots are coming out with guff is beyond me. Idiots.

    FF playing a blinder though as much as it pains me to say it.

    It has to be Varadker, unless FG really want to get a 2002-esque pasting next time they go to the polls.

    Is Inda building a wall around Rascal Donoghue, just in case?

    I think the pasting is coming anyway, regardless of who takes over. But Varadkar? Only in his mind (and among the media) is he leadership material - he's never done anything of note as minister. Good for a soundbite, but his whole career has been focussed on staying out of trouble in case anything prevents him from becoming Taoiseach.
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!
