This Government, in the making, is the most reluctant in history, facing into the most difficult period in living memory with the most uncertain outcome that ever struggled to be imagined.

The constituent parts, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and the Greens are bitterly divided in favour of and against forming the government in the first place.

And even those in favour are unsure, coming to it with internal conflicts, sized up from outside the tent by those against the formation for no one specific reason other than it feels wrong to them.
