Gardening leave? March 30, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Not entirely surprising news that:


Journalist John Drennan, who stepped down from his role as the Sunday Independent’s political editor to join Lucinda Creighton’s party, resigned from Renua soon after the election.

But what’s this?


Mr Drennan was on gardening leave for a number of weeks but this has officially ended and he is now no longer a member of the party.

I wasn’t aware he was a member, I thought he was merely a hired gun. Back to the Sindo?


WorldbyStorm - March 30, 2016

I was wondering that too. We should put bets on it!

I’m certain, from reading the above, that the implication is that he’s now returned to the Sindo, land of the shameless.

wouldn’t mind some gardening leave myself – but no chance on my work horizon – wouldn’t mind pointing out what should be dug,raked, turned over and pruned!!

Have we had this year’s open gardening thread yet?

no Michael we haven’t – would appreciate thoughts on what should be re-planted, re-rooted and re-espalliered – in the national interest, of course

I’ve given up on spuds. They’re a very fickle tuber that has only ever let me down.

glad to hear that Michael -spuds are so 1990s good life or 1840s bad life. There’s no future in them –

Apparently the quinoa is a very robust grain well suited to a smallholding.

Forgot to add – in the national interest, of course!

No doubt he’ll pick up a job in journalism and get back to ranting about how the electorate are crying out for a new Right wing party to save us from the Shinners and the Trots!

Bit odd that he is sent on gardening leave. Are Renue fearful he’ll take his knowledge of Renua policy to Fianna Fáil or DDI?

You’re not saying that in effect McDowell rebuked his son via the Irish Times’s podcast, are you?

No, I’d say he’d done that already🙂
