A gormless coalition fails to get grand coalition

For the third week in a row, and in defiance of the dying media chorus calling for a grand coalition, I want to repeat two firm predictions.
First, Micheal Martin will not go into a coalition with Fine Gael - but he may offer a minority Fine Gael government security of tenure for two years.
Second, Martin's principled decision to go into Opposition will save Irish democracy from a Sinn Fein-dominated government in 2021.
