JOE Duffy held a radio text poll the other day with the object of finding out whether his listeners favoured a national government. The result was spectacular.

The texters were almost unanimously (91pc) in favour. There is no way of knowing what motivated them but I very much doubt that they had studied the question and considered the arguments for and against, to say nothing of the daunting practical objections. I think they voted as they did out of desperation.

And very little that happened this week contributed much to allaying the mood of desperation in our distressful country.
