Jim McDaid for Ceann Comhairle

I have a suspicion that the alternative and the independents might pull a fast one to keep FF/Pd government on their toes.

How? By nominating Jim McDaid as Ceann Comhairle. He is none too pleased with the support he got from the FF organisation and it would secure his seat and he could claim that it allows FF to hold 2 there next time out. It would actually suit FF locally in Donegal as they would hold two seats time out. and it would suit McDaid as he would enjoy at least 2 more terms of office and as a dapper dressing gent he may well like the perks of office.

Doing so would strengthen the position of the independents by increasing the FF dependency on them. And I think SF would be inclined to support him in the short/medium term as they must reckon a seat in DNE is off the cards for the moment. They will concentrate on DSW for the time being.

FG+Lab+Grn (77) + SF (4) + Gregory and McGrath (2) = 83 and Jim would either vote for himself or simply abstain.

That comment is pretty silly. Why would Jim McDaid abstain. And why would SF vote for him if it would their chances of a gain in Donegal in jeopardy. Don not comment on such issues again. You clearly do not have a clue.

It was posted at a time when the Green deal was off the menu. As for your point about SF and DNE, Harry McGee had pointed out much the same logic and I agreed with him. The posts aren't meant to be holy writ you know.

Anyway, thanks for tuning in though. And please, come again.
