Not interested in politics or elections to be honest , but just happened to turn on Pat Kenny and the six candidates, and to be honest I’m finding it very interesting. I wasn’t going to vote and I still probably won’t , because it looks a foregone conclusion that the umpa lumpa will be re elected, but if you travelled the country it would be difficult to find a more obnoxious arrogant cunnt than Sean Gallagher. This is the biggest prikk I have ever listened to in ages , and the guy Casey was right, the other 5 were being disingenuous when they said they wouldn’t mind if a lash of minks moved in alongside them . Kenny is very good in his role i must say.

Leo and fine gael castigating Mr Casey, they have some cheek,whether twas Tipp council or gov funds they are now 6 houses vacant,why was there no consultation beforehand? why built them if they weren't going to move in?
The question to ask is whose idea was this in this day and age where people are paying through the nose for even a single room or worse homeless.

Peter Casey should be lauded for bringing this to public attention,the reality is a very concentrated media campaign against him.

Empty homes costing €1.5m+ in Tipp is symptomatic of what we are facing in years to come. Renovating, yes renovating, corpo flats in Dublin is costing €500,000 a unit if press reports are accurate. People refuse "free" homes for the flimsiest of reasons so the current shortage of housing will be eventually solved by the taxpayer picking up the tab for over-sized and over-priced homes for as, Leo, might wish to say, those who demand everything and pay for nothing. We have lost the ability to impose solutions thanks to a system that is so full of hypocrisy it only gets an airing when a non-entity like Casey decides to ruffle a few feathers.

Too long all hushed up and the oh so true phrase of not "what you know but who" again applied in this country.

As an aside terrible ill timed comments regarding Irelands borders and the possibilty of the re emergence of voilence yesterday, with trying to instill fear in people with his comments he still had time to castigate Peter "Wildmanfromborneo" Casey for speaking out, the correct answer was for Leo to investigate where and who spent the taxpayers money in Tipp.

an epic shout on Casey, win or lose. not in the country so no vote today. I was speaking to a local of mine tonight who loves hawking the voting centres. the normal area vote is a straight head count between ff and fg, and my man says tonight that the normal ffers and fgers were ignoring party and freely coming out en masse for Casey.

Casey will win the poll in the local ballot, the remarkable aspect is that no local is likely to have met Casey and he certainly never canvassed in the area either. I hope he gets across the line for your bets, it would be the Irish political moment of all time were he to win.

I do predict with a general election on the horizon, a solid percentage for Casey will be good news for independents who do not have to toe pc party lines.

FF and FG saying one thing in public but in reality their strategists would have not taken this weekend off. Both civil war parties know they have somehow to tap into that concern that Peter Casey expressed. It is way too large a voting cohort to ignore. I'd have had FF down as the better chance to do that.

I wonder who will now emerge out of this. Another version of the PDs or Renua? If examples in other countries are to go by, you have to be controversial - it gets yourself heard in the first place - and by being so, will mean you pee of some element of society. While that will annoy the chattering classes in Dalkey, and expect an onslaught, it is blatantly obvious that there is a sizeable voting cohort who, while in the minority, support social conservative values. Someone like Maria Steen or Laura Perrins perhaps? Lucinda Creighton?

Ha ha. God forbid. I was trying to say that the Steens and Co would be part of this. They would bring a certain cohort with them. Rural Ireland, older, maybe less educated though not entirely. FG and FF would have a fair few in their ranks that would fit in as too would some well known Independents with a national profile. Most political parties are anyway a broad range. I can see an articulate conservative appearing in the next 2/3 years. Yes, you need a 'personality'. No bull**** delivery and giving it back in spades to the media. They will tap into the ordinary worker's malaise with all things around them. The inability of young people to buy a house on average incomes, the growing realisation of people in their 50 and 60s who are not prepared at all for retirement. I could go on.
