Deputy Jim McDaid has written to acting Taoiseach Brian Cowen to inform him that he has withdrawn his support from the ‘Government’.

This further reduces Brian Cowen’s already tiny majority and comes just before what is forecast to be the Mother of all Budgets, which is expected to take a ‘crack of doom’ approach to the nation’s finances.

McDaid has been calling for an early election and he has now written to the government chief whip to say he might be going against the government in future dail votes.

“I feel compelled to inform you that my hugely developed self preservation gene has kicked in and I have withdrawn my support from Fianna Fail. It wasn’t me. I never took part in any poor Fianna Fail decisions. Bigger boys made me do it. It was the political climate of the time” McDaid says in the letter, which The Emergency’s Breaking News Desk says it has seen.

“My views on a general election are well known,” he said. “I believe it would be in the interest of Fianna Fail and by extension in the interest of me.”
