VIDEO: This comment by former FF TD Conor Lenihan is being branded "cocky" and "arrogant"
He's very pleased with himself.
The resurgence of Fianna Fáil has been the big story of the General Election so far with them tied on 28 seats with Fine Gael heading into day two after count centres around the country.
Former Fianna Fáil TD Conor Lenihan was on a panel on RTÉ Radio 1 last night discussing the election when he was caught making this comment before they went live.

The comment has annoyed a lot of people online who feel that Lenihan was over the top with his remark.

@RTERadio1 If they go back to the electorate this clip is all that's needed for the FG/LB campaign. Unbelievable arrogance.
