While certain sections of the media have produced breathless headlines over consecutive weeks on Lucinda Creighton's every quiver, there seems little doubt but that within the next 18 months a new political party led by Ms Creighton will be established.

While the leadership, party name and the party's positioning seem to be largely determined there are some uncertainties that could impact on the fate of any party that emerges.

Between now and the next general election, it seems likely that at least some of the current members of the Reform Alliance will decide to step outside the embrace of the Alliance and run as independents – Denis Naughten seems determined to do so.
