    They would be better to consider a merger with zanu-ff that have this mouthy opportunist represent them in an election.

    If this is true it is further proof of how utterly useless fine gael are.

    That's a little odd, I'd have thought he'd be suited to a more working class constituency.

    Eamo and the Irish Editor of the Sunday Times are pretty close so I doubt if he is telling fibs about his buddy.

    So would I. I would have thought where he comes from like Dublin Central or North West would have been more likely.

    Having said that, eh may have soaked up a large chunk of the SEIC vote which LP's Kevin Humphries looks set to devour in DSE.

    Did he not also flirt with PDs at one stage. BTW, why is he not doing Newstalk on sunday morning show for some time. Ger Colleran replacing him for many Sundays now.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    True. Bit pointless running him in established FG country. His benefit is that he could win an otherwise unwinable seat in an urban working class area.
