When (political) distinctions are superflous December 8, 2013Posted by WorldbyStorm in Economy, Irish Politics, The Left.
In the newsagent this morning what did I see on the cover of the Irish Mail on Sunday but the news that Fianna Fáil is looking for other TDs to add to their – ahem – success with one C. Keaveney, or to put it another way, ‘high-profile’ recruits. Names bandied about included Peter Mathews who it would appear is not a member of the Reform Alliance, which may come as news to them. Tom Fleming, the indomitable Mattie McGrath and others were mentioned. But there was Stephen Donnelly who was oddly equivocal. Of course a lot depends on how the questions were put, but at least Donnelly put his finger on it, that the differences between FG, FF and the LP were relatively minimal and someone like him would feel comfortable in any of them.
