This is not a chess game and our TDs should go ahead and put a democratic government in place, rather than treating the honest people of Ireland who elected them as pawns.

Admittedly, Irish Water is a top-priority national utility; quality water is essential for the survival of humanity and costs money. It should be treated as such in government but not scandalously used as a 'red herring' to jeopardise the wishes of the people to get a government in place. Neither should politicians and legislators be hypnotised or persuaded by the media.

Europe has thrown up plenty of examples of government formations in recent times. Sweden and the Netherlands have done well with fragmented governments, while in Italy a change of government has almost been an annual event since World War II.
