It looks like the little Baldy Bollix has had his comeuppance.
A week ago he had an apparently unassailable lead in the presidential race. He was miles ahead and I don’t think anyone would have given the others a chance.
Then came the revelations about his close ties to Fianna Fail, the brown envelope culture and dodgy business deals. Talk about being shot down in flames!
From the start, I had no clear favourite. I worked on a reverse order principle – eliminating the worst and voting for the survivor. On that basis, Higgins was my choice as being the least bad candidate.
A small part of me would have liked to have seen Gallaher elected though. That way he would remain in the spotlight and would probably have to face impeachment. That would have been great craic. As it is, the little shit will hopefully just vanish into obscurity, where he belongs.
A good day for Ireland?
I dunno about that.
Let’s just say it’s not a bad day.
