Former Taosieach Bertie Ahern has announced he will seek a nomination to run for President in the autumn.

Bertie is quoted as saying


It is unclear if Bertie will run as the official FF candidate or seek a deal with the county councils.
Nice try we know what date it is.

With apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

How Do I Love Bertie? (Sonnet 43)


How do I despise thee?
Let me count the votes.
I hate thee to the very depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal disgrace.
I loathe thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I revile thee freely, as men strive for right.
I abominate thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I resent thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I abhor thee with an abhorrence I seemed to lose
With my lost saints.
I am revolted by thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life;
and, if God choose,I shall but resent thee better after death.

So, insignificant nobody says something about a thing that MAY or may not happen.

The sooner this country is rid of Ahearns, the better. Personally, I hope Bertie does run again so we can ridicule him again. There is so much sh1t about him it will be fun dredging it all up again. I personally can't wait to highlight once again how Bertie admitted he consciously attempted, and succeeded to hide his assets from a court (family court) of this land during the separation proceedings with his ex wife.

:D Brilliant, and yet how many (including myself) thought it plausible?

A two horse race between Bertie and Pádraig Flynn I reckon.
