Maman Poulet | Clucking away crookedly through media, politics and life

Not accountants but wannabe politicians

A few weeks ago Fianna Fáil uploaded a video of local election candidates. I only got round to watching it on Monday.

The first thing that struck me – Poor Dermot Flanagan from Tallaght South – someone didn’t check the caption spelling! (Dermot was one candidate who caught my attention at the Ard Fheis, he can actually give a speech without keeping his eyes stuck on a script.) Dermot likes the word local also – wonder will he swap it for place names in his ward, the way Charlie ‘Tallaght’ O’Connor does.

Does anyone in Fianna Fáil wear a jumper or a hoodie or an anorak? These candidates look like people who work for KPMG (or used to!)

Ok I’m going to say it now and it might stick. Stepford Candidates anyone?
