Anyway day 7 of rFurlongs strop aside (oh for the heady days of two weeks ago when he longed for FF FG to unite on economic progress)

Yates has done a prediction (he called 85% of seats correctly in 2016)

FF 60
FG 46
SF 17
Greens 8
Lab 6
Others 30

For those (extremely) slow learners in the leafy suburbs of south Dublin...Deputy Martin for the 1000th time ruling out coalition with SF just this morning. :yawn:

The symbiosis of SF and FF is gross, hopefully as an election draws closer FF will have the decency to stop aping SF.

Labour 7 I take it ? Was Ivan really that accurate in his predictions last time out ? I seem to remember him predicting far greater support for FG ( like the rest of us )

Your numbers add up to 167 though. 160 TDs after next election no ?

Finian McGrath's Lebron James style decision is tiresome as flip. You don't drag every ounce of publicity available from the media, spam your constituency and slap your face all over bus shelters if you're not running.

Both parties 5/6 to end up with the most seats. Surely you’d have to put the house on FF. Can’t see how FG manage to win at this stage unless they can hold it off for a couple of months which looks extremely unlikely.

PP has FF 8/11 and FG evens. Who has FF at 5/6. Sounds like a license to print money

No, for someone who wants a good steak and can’t get to a butcher’s . Far superior to any other supermarket

Didn't FG squeeze the most TDs out of their votes as is possible last time?

The countryside is aching to vote FF and there's a few constituencies in Dublin they'll get back into.

Maybe you were looking at the over /under market where interestingly the market is suggesting both sides will win an almost identical number of seats

FF 5/6 50.5 seats
FG5/6. 49.5 seats


Both parties are 5/6 to win over/under 26.55% of fpv’s

Yeah they slightly over achieved on their vote percentage
The largest party gets a 3 to 5 seat bump usually

Hard to see many advantages for FG. They start ahead I suppose. More depth than FF which is probably a function of the current seat advantage.

Sounds about right.

Yates predictions seem accurate. I take your point about MM but are there the numbers for a rainbow coalition?

60 FF + Labour + Greens wouldn't be enough, surely?

I'm not mad on big Jim tbh. He'll probably get higher than FF normally do on my list, he's been reasonably competent on legal matters when he's spoken, but he's gone very quiet lately, other than a weird comment about State legal work.

He's also been deafeningly silent on the issue of insurance, like FF in general.

He got a preference from me last time, probably not next time.

I've seen him more times in Birchalls, or McSorleys than on the doorstep.
