    Gawd, what a prospect, lot’s of top-down emphasis there on an self-selectiong elite telling us ordinary punters what’s good for us, the message is heavy on traditional measures of “success”: “director”, “chairperson”, “mayor”, “whip”, “business owner” etc.

    Muppetocracy more like.

    What an ego and I certainly will not vote for Alan Farrell. All fur coat no underwear – no substance and its all about him. No Thanks there are other more credible candidates standing in North Dublin. He is part of the cute hoor, parish pump politics.

      The first thing this guy needs to do is find out what constituency he’s in. A large part of Swords is now in the Dublin West constituency, yet we still got this flyer. I’ll be not voting for a different Fine Gael candidate until Enda Kenny gets replaced.

    I know who I will not vote for but I do not know who I will vote for. As far as I am concerned the Irish people are being saddled with debts of private companies. The political class in this country failed in their duty – principally by the government but also by the opposition. If the minimum wage employee is over paid – the political class and the bureaucracy class from the office of the president down is more than overpaid – salaries, perks, pensions and expenses.
    We have over 29 County Councils, 5 City Councils, 5 Borough Councils and 75 Town Councils for a country of 4 million people. I see no chance of FG doing anything in respect of the above bureaucracy, perks, privileges and salaries, unfortunately. We do not need fliers – we need answers and commitment.

    My recently received flier does not show me what skills, education, background and experience this candidate has. I do not see why I should vote for him. I do not see what contribution he can make towards resolving the unemployment that affects so many, resolving the 2 tier health system, reducing the bureaucracy beyond abolishing the Senate, abolishing the “advisors” to the government, stopping the inquiry gravy trains for the legal profession and consultants. Abolish the Senate – snappy phrase. Surely it should be amend or abolish ? Why are we not being offered a real Senate instead of abolishing the “politically abused” (Taoiseach’s appointees) Senate.

    Interesting to hear Alan mentioning putting an end to cronyism and to who you know ! If it was’nt so ironic it would be funny ! Is’nt Alan himself an integral part of this ‘Craggy Island’ system ? Well paid position in Fingal Co Co and a Property Management Co which profits from exactly the same type of ‘cronyism’ he bangs on about.. And yes you are right- its all about HIM.. We dont need any more of this type of dinosaur politician on this little island, him and his opportunist ‘cronies’ are part of the problem…

  7. […] yet in one of his election leaflets he writes… “We must now change our society from one where cronyism and who you know count […]
