not quite but you’re along the right track with FF

Incredible. They got 48% of the vote and one seat of four. That has to be a bad vote management record. Especially considering they were only a couple of seats short of winning that general election.


eamonncork - August 24, 2013

Actually there was five seats, so it wasn’t that.


Tomboktu - August 24, 2013

Well, Fianna Fáil filled the top four places on the ballot paper: Allen, L; Browne, J; Byrne, G; Byrne, H.

I think 6 is Anton La Vey, chief minister of the Church of Satan.
