One other thought on the latest poll… that appetite for a ‘new’ party of the centre right? January 24, 2017

It doesn’t exist.

Renua is now history in polling terms. I guess at a stretch one might find the support for the Independents as evidence that there is support for something other than FF/FG but perhaps the support is… and I know this will come as a shock to some 😉 ….simply for independent TDs. In any case that crew are so variegated politically that one would have to be dubious one can read anything into that.

Yes, that’s a point for the ‘Signs of Hope’ post. The key political take away from the whole RENUA debacle is that astonishing disconnect between the media and political reality in this country. A disconnect that calls into question most mainstream political commentary and analysis which is proving, increasingly, less than useless for understanding politics. The determination to ignore the slow shift to the Left, which is happening if you take ‘Left’ in very broad terms (i.e. include SD and SF), on the part of the media is remarkable. The degree to which the FF revival is due to their pretending to be social democratic is part of that process. If FF go back to aping the PDs again that revival could well judder to a halt. Anyway, in these grim times it’s good to be reminded that RENUA are now just a footnote in history.
