The most obvious statement is sometimes the least stated, so here is a statement of the obvious, seldom stated - by any objective analysis, this Government has been rejected by the people.

Yet the pretence continues that the Government believes it will win the next election. That pretence is either a big lie or an act of utter delusion.

At the moment, Fine Gael and Labour are on course to have wiped out all of the gains that both parties made in the seminal 2011 election.
