    I note that he wants to create a society where we 'celebrate difference'. A lot of people don't even tolerate difference at the moment - so he has his work cut out for him.
    Interestingly, both candidates addressed their leaflets to 'The Household'. Is that mandated by An Post or SIPO or is it motivated by environmental considerations I wonder?

He's got a growing gut on him from the lack of exercise and it's a demanding role. This is a job that should be done by a younger person who has the energy and ambition for it, not some old duffer who will probably be holed up in the Aras on the sofa in a couple of years holding court in his little fiefdom like the old Queen that he is.
    Was looking at some blurb for a tech conference coming up. Mentioned a forum for pitches - 3 minutes. Think Web Summit one was 5m. In short you need time to present an idea and put some flesh on it. One minute is a sound byte gimmick, where there's a very high risk everyone will look like an idiot and you learn nothing. His apparent physical failings and age still leave him miles ahead of the rest of the chancers .

    They make him look like an old man fumbling for his notes because he couldn't remember a short speech.

    He could have done his one term that he promised the people he would do and bowed out to applause with people saying who are we going to get to follow that- now the git Higgins is going to be pitied and there is no way that small mound of flesh is going to live for another 7 years- he is the small chap who’s big wife egged him on that it’s egg on the face that will finish him-

    She currently looks like the only one who looks like a professional politician and "presidential".
