An unlikely intervention? January 21, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Anyone read John Drennan in the Irish Mail on Sunday? Very curious piece, wherein Peter Casey suggested he was intending to ‘ambush’ Leo Varadkar in his own constituency with billboards and advertisements critical of the Taoiseach and Fine Gael, as well as thinking about running in Dublin West as an Independent candidate as well as running in Donegal. It’s all a bit attention seeking for someone who perhaps hasn’t felt the love since the Presidential election. According to the piece there’s no mention of ‘Traveller issues’ in his election literature.

There was no mention of ‘Traveller issues’ in his European Election or Seanad election leaflets. (He produced no leaflets for his Presidential campaign)

If it siphons votes from FG, I’m not complaining. Let Leo try to keep the Greens and far-right happy at the same time.

Did see the headline, didn’t give it much credence. He has till 1700 tomorrow to declare if he’s so inclined, but is it not FF he would take votes off of?

Been wondering about his chances in Donegal. He lost there in the Presidential election, does anyone know what position he was in with the Donegal boxes for the MEP election? Presumably he’s looking to take Pringle’s seat.If he still falls short, what next, the locals?

How’s his Irish? Údarás na Gaeltachta?

This now seemingly confirmed. Petty little stunt, but fits the profile. Still think this will hurt FF in constituency more that FG.
