When Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil reached their confidence and supply deal almost two years ago, few thought they would go the distance. Fine Gael ministers believe the recent rhetoric of Fianna Fáil underscores the extent to which Fianna Fáil has now reverted to being a traditional opposition party and is determined to force an election. Hugh O'Connell and Michael Brennan discuss the two parties' conscious uncoupling as well as Micheál Martin's recent criticism of the Irish Independent on Twitter.
