The exit of Dr Jim McDaid may throw a spanner in the works for the Budget 2010 vote. The Government now relies on two Independent TDs to get the budget through. Once again, the fate of the nation is in the hands of an unpredicatable Kerryman and a man kicked out of Fine Gael for being too corrupt!

Mr Lowry said yesterday there was now a serious danger that the budget would not be passed. He told The Irish Times he would decide how he would vote on or near budget day.
“Obviously Jackie Healy Rae’s and my support is now more crucial than it has been in the past, but in my mind all of the time is that the country is on the brink of losing its economic independence,” he said.
So what's going to happen? Let's do some Project Maths! Even our Minister for Education and Skills could figure this one out!
