Confused by the Irish political situation? Fear not: a letter in today’s Irish Times sets out the situation clearly: “If I understand the current situation, we now have a minority government led by a Taoiseach who was not elected by the people, but who became Taoiseach because he was elected leader of his party, but who is now no longer leader of his party. Is that correct? Is it legal? Is it constitutional? If so, do we need a new constitution? Does anybody know? Is this an Irish version of a French farce?”
