[Marxism] Southern Irish general election

Exit polls indicate quite a recovery for Fianna Fail, a significant loss of
votes and seats for Fine Gael (although it should remain the #1 party),
Labour losing over half its vote; the Shinners going up by maybe 50% and a
good showing for the Trotskyists and (mainly left) independents.

Most likely a hung parliament.

So a lot of horse-trading or a new election.

For an analysis from a day before the exit polls, see:
