Political Theatre, Cabinet Forecast, Mary Lou McDonald on Leo The “Tory” by Inside Politics / Inside Story


Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald returns to the podcast to share her views on Leo Varadkar and Fine Gael’s place on the political spectrum, future coalition possibilities for Sinn Féin (“we will talk to everybody”), and whether the northern wing of her party might be convinced to drop abstentionism and support a Labour “Coalition of Chaos” in Westminster.

But first we hear from Fiach Kelly and Pat Leahy about the feast of political theatre we can look forward to upon Leo Vardakar’s elevation next week, and what whisperings they’ve heard about who will adorn the presumptive Taoiseach’s cabinet.
