    Homelessness is his priority with some interesting suggestions to tackle it (laid out in the piece below).
    George Hook: I could be the Michael Collins Fine Gael candidate in general election - Independent.ie

    Most interesting bit is that he doesn't think he can vote FG the next time. Hook has always come across as a die hard blueshirt, one would wonder at his disenchantment.

    He's as you would expect, on the far right when it comes to the economy. "Hook will campaign for no tax reductions until the country is self-sufficient and not borrowing to pay for its day-to-day running. Contrary to established wisdom, rather than having fewer people pay tax, more people will pay it. The reason is simple. The citizens should feel ownership of the country, and believe that they are making a contribution to its success."

    So P.ie, would you give your number 1 to that old devil?
    I wouldn't pi$$ on him if he was on fire.

    I think he's being hounded by faux-liberals.

    If he is ousted he should set up a blog. Many would read it. Host it in the US to get First Amendment protections.

    Probably giving him too much credit - more Hook following a policy of "blurt now, think later".
