What are they up to? The two biggest right-wing parties have wasted a week staging meaningless talks that can't lead to anything. Panic? Indecision? I don't think so.

The figures are irrefutable. The only prospect for stable government is, unfortunately, a coalition of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael.

Every day that passes without a decisive move increases political instability. And they casually reveal that they expect to continue in this way for perhaps eight more weeks.
