Fine Gael panic could collapse this Government

Regina Doherty's ultimatum to Enda Kenny, while welcomed by many in Fine Gael, was reckless in its timing and added to the sense that Fine Gael is having a nervous breakdown.
Doherty was so absorbed by the leadership stakes that she failed do her basic job as chief whip: to get Fine Gael members into their Dail seats in time.
But Doherty, whom I mentally call Mother of All Dragons, will not suffer, being one of the party's favourite fighters against Fianna Fail.
