Who will win: Leo's 'spin' or FF's fabled machine?
Micheal Martin is facing pressure to pull the plug on the mercurial Varadkar before it's too late, writes Jody Corcoran
Micheal Martin's Budget speech, and again to his party's Ard Fheis, has laid out what will be Fianna Fail's line of attack on Fine Gael, and Leo Varadkar in particular, between now and the election.
But the Fianna Fail leader is also under mounting pressure within his party this weekend to pull the plug ahead of next year's Budget on the confidence and supply deal which underpins the Government.
In short, Fianna Fail is in a real bind right now, which will become more evident the longer this Government continues.
