The possibility of a General Election ahead of Christmas is looming large, and the internet is understandably feeling pretty heated about the idea. 

The commotion all started with an email, sent to Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald in May 2015, detailing a legal strategy to be deployed against Garda Whistleblower Maurice McCabe. 

The email, which Ms. Fitzgerald says she does not remember receiving, was described in the Dáil has having malicious content aimed at smearing McCabe's character. 

The Tánaiste insisted she was legally unable to intervene, a fact that could see her losing her job. 

Twitter is reacting strongly.
