Speaking at a private event a few days ago, Michael McDowell said that there was a gap in the political marketplace for a new party. Presumably he meant a right-of-centre liberal party, something like the PDs, only better.

I'd prefer a Christian Democratic party myself (Fine Gael is no longer one) but McDowell is undoubtedly right about there being a gap in the market.

As he said, without a new party the next election will come down to who gets to govern with Labour? That could be the way of it for years to come.
