It's more than telling that even before TDs finished their breakfast on Wednesday, figures within the Independent Alliance were already speculating about a potential replacement for their own colleague John Halligan.

In fact, a number of government ministers had been openly predicting that Mr Halligan would walk the plank once this new, albeit precarious, administration got underway.

Let's be clear: It is perfectly reasonable for any TD to wear their heart on their sleeve when it comes to their own constituencies.
