Poll shows the price to be paid for broken pledges

DESPITE the rise in support for Fianna Fail, Sinn Fein and independents, Fine Gael will take some comfort from this morning's Irish Independent/Millward Brown poll on the European elections.
What were previously the three constituencies of East, South and North-West have now been redrawn into two four-seat mammoth electoral areas, namely Midlands-North-West and South. However, despite that new electoral map, and despite forcing through unpalatable cutbacks and tax hikes, the main government party is in with a chance of holding on to the three seats it holds in these areas.
Who occupies those seats is almost certain to change, however.
