    Default Nigerian Independent FF

    From Todays Irish Times:

    Ignatius ‘Iggy’ Okafor – a former Fianna Fáil member who left the party “just before the recession” – is running as an Independent.
    “just before the recession”

    Classic !

    Nice to see the Nigerian community have found their proper political home in Ireland, and are learning from their peers in how to be oppo and government all at once.

    I love how the Irish Times manages to spin the locality as some sort of magical multicultural paradise.
    Welcome to Mulhuddart, north Dublin, one of the most cosmopolitan parts of the country...
    A large part of the ward consists of a constellation of sprawling, sparklingly new housing estates where, as recently as five years ago, there was nothing but fields. Population centres such as Ongar village and Tyrrelstown Plaza have the inescapable feel of Potemkin settlements that arose overnight – and, in a sense, they did.

    I'd bet if he won he would rejoin 'De Party" straight away.

    Can someone add this fool's name to the list of Fianna Failers running as fake independents?

    Idowu Olafimihan 'Real FF' (not independent FF)

    He moves languidly along the driveway, a stack of flyers in hand, wearing a slightly rumpled grey suit and a broad smile. “Hello, madam. My name is Idowu. I’m here to remind you about the local elections on June 5th and ask for your Number One vote.”

    The African woman takes the Fianna Fáil leaflet and scans it for a moment. “Unfortunately, I’m for Fine Gael,” she murmurs apologetically. In his soft-spoken way he tries for one of her later preferences, but seems fairly unperturbed when she fails to commit. “I’m pretty sure the husband will vote for me,” he says as the team retreats across the lawn, chatting amongst themselves in Yoruba.
    This is classic stuff !

    “I’m pretty sure the husband will vote for me”
    70's man is back and his name is Idowu !
