On the other hand – regarding an election… June 29, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

This isn’t quite a Gordon Brown “bottling it” moment (and my sympathies were broadly with Brown in that instance) but interesting to see the framing used by M Martin here today:

“Speaking on Newstalk, Mr Martin said: “Maybe he wants an election, if he wants an election, let him call an election”.

Addressing the prospect of an early election, Deputy Martin said: “The Taoiseach himself created the hype, and I think the Taoiseach has contributed to all of this, in the sense that he has raised the spectre falsely about us openly talking about supporting a Sinn Féin motion that was never tabled, it was a phantom motion, it was a bit of a stunt at the time.”

Putting it back on Varadkar, linking to SF, headlines etc, Martin will likely count that a good mornings work.
