Mícheál Lehane, of RTÉ, reports

The Taoiseach has been unable to give an absolute guarantee that the Dáil will reconvene next Wednesday amid speculation that there could be a snap general election called next week.

Speaking after a Cabinet meeting in Marino in Dublin, Leo Varadkar said that he would have to speak to Fianna Fáil, Independents and other parties over the next few days.

He said the return of the Dáil was planned for Wednesday, before adding that this is case unless something changes.

    Does it matter? This country is failing and will continue to fail because of the people in it. There is zero ‘greater good’ mentality. It’s everyman or woman for themselves and the state of the country is testament to that.

        get out you black and tans.
        get this government out and rid us the scourge of twits that would even think to glorify them.
        fine Gael are the black and tans of 2020.
        get out

    it’s going to be so depressing after the election when FG ar replaced by identical FF, and we are reminded that change is impossible unless we give SF a chance, which people are too short sighted to do. If for any reason, would you not vote for them because every other big party has had a go and ALL done absolutely awful. Nothin to lose to give the one party a go who hasnt had a go. Personally i think there are many more better reasons to vote for them.

      Not short sighted at all, they know things could be even worse if they handed power to SF, common thugs and criminals under the guise of a political party preying on the working class

        so would ya prefer to see the country go the same way then? two parties taking turns in funnelling all our resources and wealth to the already wealthy? Sinn Fein would at least be working for the people and for our interests and well being.

        and what have your party proven exactly Cian? How they can waste an economic boom? How they can let every sector fail regardless of being easily within grasp of fixing? They’re fupping useless. They’re like a bad PR company trying to play politics.

          SF in Westmisister – never show up (but take the expenses)
          SF in Europe – useless (they lost their MEPs last year because of how useless they were)
          SF in NI – don’t show up for three years (but in fairness the do take the pay)

            classic FGer. Gets asked why their party are so bad, answers with “WHAT ABOUT AT SINN FEIN?” .. the only good things you have to say about FG are flagrant lies. You’ve all adopted the party tactic of following what the Tories and Republicans did, which is to just straight up lie. Well thanks for that, another lovely gift from FG, introducing the most disgusting, dishonest tactics in world politics, which are ultimatly causing detremental harm to the world. And you lot want to follow suit, anything to stay in power. Incredibly selfish bunch, FG.

            ps. they’re right to not take seats in Westminster. They are a republican party. Just because any FGer would only love to be in there with their heroes the Tories. As for Europe, they’re mor concerned with what they can do at home, not like FG, where getting into Europe is the goal, so you can sit back and cream in big money as a reward for towing the party lines and EU mandates back home, which always involve fupping over the public, eg. water charges, PSC cards, giving away our fishing waters, gas exploration licenses etc., abhorently crooked lot. Not a shred of honest decency in FG. Crowd of selfish charlatans. Couldnt care less about the irish public, once you can feather your own nests.

      1. Dr.Fart

        i know that, Otis. But I’d prefer to do that than reward the current insanely inept gov. to retain power, or to hadn it back to the lot who destoryed the enitre nation for personal gain.
