As Brian notes the tables may be turning in Scotland, the climate is definately changing in the Republic if the latest Red C poll for the Sunday Business Post is anything to go by. It’s the scale of the swings that strike you first. As Pat Leahy notes: “Fianna Fáil support has plunged by 10 percentage points since late September”. That’s one hell of a big dipper ride. And the winners: Labour and Fine Gael are up by 6% and 5% respectively.
