Independents…2 April 12, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

And just speaking of the Independents, the Phoenix (which is a particularly good read this edition) has an interesting report on a potential divvy up of Cabinet seats for an FG minority led government. The Phoenix suggests that there might be four Independent ministers.

I haven’t read elsewhere that that is the idea and I’d have thought the formerly very large parties would be all too aware of the dangers in this of gifting credibility and now possibly governmental authority to the Independents.

Though in a way that adds to the point made in the earlier post about the way in which Independents have been thrust to the centre of government formation in a way which is quite unlike the past.

If we do see Independents ushered into the light of political day as cabinet members would the calculation that it isn’t possible to eject them at this point and perhaps that a spot of government might see their numbers dwindle subsequently as has been the pattern for the PDs, GP and most recently the LP?
