  1. This looks a lot like what we need. But aside from helping others (many of them laudable) what has David actually achieved in public life to date? Has he been involved in any voluntary organizations for instance? If not, while that does not disqualify him, maybe his true calling is to help others get elected?

    Don’t be codding me.
    About as Independent as Beverly Cooper-Flynn (FF) was.
    Mc Carthy is Fine Gael through and through.
    He should be wearing a blueshirt in his photo.

    • sorry to dissapoint you Tom but I have never been a member of any political party, I have worked for partys and Independents as well as a number of groups! My politics is that of a social democrat, and if you look at what I am saying it is far removed from the reforms (so called) espoused by any party in GE11

        David, I never said that you were a member of the party.
        Gerry Adams was never a member of the IRA either, but you’d hardly call him unbiased.
        Proposing to cut 30,000 public service jobs is straight out of Enda’s Five Point Plan.
        Next you’ll be saying 14 years, let’s get Ireland working and waving your fist.
