          Yes, but when she’s part of the government and the government’s job is to help solve the housing crisis – the housing crisis which she is financially benefitting from, you have to think, nahhh. There’s a conflict of interest here

      If Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Labour have any cop on at all left, they’ll enter all new Candidates into the Senate elections

      I haven’t completed a full round up yet
      Between catching up with work and recovering from five 15 hour days on the trot – and what have ya

      But I haven’t seen many of their Senators come in with a seat
      Save for Labour have a few shouts alright

    I’m not a fan of hers, but I’d rather her slight uselessness and entitlement than posh-boy Murphy’s complete & utter hook line & sinker uselessness and entitlement

        He won’t be in Housing at least, hopefully won’t get a Ministerial position either, and why would he, useless

    Amazing that southside Blueshirts were given a straight choice between a pro-repeal, media friendly, entrepreneurial successful female candidate and the most disastrous minister for housing ever and they chose the latter.

    I suppose it’s to be expected in a constituency with more landlords per capita than any other, anywhere on ‘these islands’ bar central London. :-/

      Kate’s a landlord herself Ann. She looks very upset. I suspect she’ll have a few things to say about Leo before the end of the day.
