Government receives another standing count

November 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

EU Commissioner Margot Wallström reminded her various audiences today that the Irish Government will be reporting to the EU commission/council of ministers next month about how it proposes to solve the Lisbon problem.

As bloggers informed her (in what might be described as an extensive post debate huddle) following her interview with Ursula Halligan, that issue is probably not top of the governmental priority list at the moment. Survival might be more in the plan for government ministers and getting a Yes or any other solution to Lisbon won’t be keeping FF/Greens in government anytime soon.

We had received texts with the Irish Times Tns MRBI results whilst at the meeting. Jaw dropping would be an understatement

One rocket of an opinion poll is unfortunate, a second one is far more serious. A 76% dissatisfaction rating? Unheard of. Even Cowen’s own supporters are agin him. And it’s a month since the budget – loads of time for it to settle in – except the government has been anything but settled!

Can anyone explain how Enda is doing this in terms of the Fine Gael numbers? He is not half as visible as Gilmore? Is it anti government? Or pro Hayes, Bruton, O’Reilly et al?
