The Floating Voter team has recorded a special podcast on the political ramifications of the Government's Covid-19 emergency measures.

Recorded remotely due to social distancing rules, Kevin Doyle was joined for by Philip Ryan and Hugh O'Connell to discuss the political reaction to the coronavirus.

Independent.ie's Political Team debated whether the next government will be able to unwind the financial package for employees and employers impacted by the global pandemic.

They also discussed the division within in the Green Party over entering into a coalition government with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael. And asked whether climate climate change issues will be relevant to voters if the country plunges into recession due to the virus?
