    The Phoenix tipping PBP's John Lyons to get Dail seat in next GE ?

    Glancing through the Phoenix magazine they are tipping PBP's John Lyons to get the Dail seat in next GE in the 5 seater of Dublin Bay North. They reckon Finian McGrath who got the last seat will be gone. That leaves John Lyons (8,476) and the LP's Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (10,329) to fight it out. It should be pointed out that the AAA's Michael O'Brien (2,562) also ran, whether he will next time as PBP and Solidarity/AAA are supposed to have cooperation next time.

    In fairness to John Lyons I have met him a few times on protests for the anti water charges, Palestinians etc and he's a decent sort, a dedicated activist although I mightn't be a big fan of PBP. So those of you in the know, what's your opinion ?

    I reckon the Phoenix is guessing based on their own notions of what's going on, while Finian is as cute as a ************************ house rat and has a huge chance of surviving as a pork barrel TD in a 5 seater.

    His services will still be very saleable based on Dail arithmetic.

    Wouldn't have any truck with professional 'activists' especially dedicated ones, especially the Palestian crowd,so won't be getting my vote Pee.

    What does he do for a crust?

    Does he get up early.

    Has he anything positive at all about him even for a preference ?

    Finian will not be forgiven for keeping FG in power, imo.
