Meanwhile back at the SDs… February 16, 2017

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Speaking of the Phoenix it has a most interesting analysis as to why Stephen Donnelly went over to FF, arguing that once he became an Independent he was particularly vulnerable in Wicklow, not least because a number of his closest political allies, Cllr. Jennifer Whitmore being one such, did not follow him out of the SDs and would present problems and challenges at the next election eating into his vote. What struck me as intriguing that apparently a fair few decided to stick with the SDs and that might suggest a cohesivity to that project that has been hitherto somewhat lacking – at least as a perception. Notable was how Gary Gannon also released a statement when Donnelly went across to FF pledging his own continuing allegiance to the SDs.

Whitmore topped the poll in Greystones https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicklow_County_Council_election,_2014 but could she really harm challenged an Independent who got 14k votes last time out http://electionsireland.org/candidate.cfm?ID=5353
