The Fine Gael Wexford candidate previously made comments linking migrants in Ireland to terror group ISIS.
Fianna Fáil leader says Lorraine Clifford Lee will be apologising directly to Pavee Point over tweets
This discussion will meet with the disapproval of many in mainstream politics. Why so?
Because the two mainstream parties are vigorously trying to sweep it all under the carpet.
I'm talking about the Loraine Clifford Lee case, the lady FF hopeful canvassing in Fingal. It appears that seven years back she made disparaging remarks about the travellers and also about a black Brazilian dwarf
(make that undersized person) who sat beside her on the bus.
The fly on FG's ointment is their aspiring lady TD for Wexford, Verona Murphy. She's not long out of the hatches at all -- quite new to politics I believe but she believes that Asylum seekers should be screened for
their previous Isis activities.
It's noteworthy that both political parties are doing their best to "rehabilitate" these errant errant candidates and have not requested them to resign. I guess a false start at the first jump could be fatal for the coming election where every TD counts.
Striking in my view is the vigour of Ireland's "Thought Police" who trolled back seven years in the case of Loraine to find some mud.
be careful of what you tweet or email. It lasts for a long time.
