THE GOVERNMENT WILL today face a motion of no confidence tabled by Sinn Féin as numerous questions arise over its handling of the Maurice McCabe scandal.

Fianna Fáil will abstain in the vote, ensuring that the government survives, but has said that Fine Gael must “pull up their socks”.

The government collapsing would not inevitably lead to an election, but it would be very likely. A recent poll found that just 28% of people want an election held now.

Today’s question, Do you have confidence in the government?


Poll Results:

No (17292)
