Yeah I saw that, but in fairness, they were just reporting rumours and grapevine info. And you can hardly depend on that, especially when you consider the lack of clarity here, with whole situation about the Green candidate in Sligo-North LeitrimClones Road Casual said:
Simple answer is no, he wont win a seat. Paudge will probably lose his seat but it will be to FF or FG.biteback said:Has he got a chance of being elected - possibly taking the Independent or Sinn Fein seats there?
Just wondering, as I don't know anything about the consituency and noticed his background as a town and county councillor.
And extra dosh for us through public funding!tenderloins1 said:He wont win the seat especially with it being in effect a four seater.
Hoever a clever move by both him and the Greens. Has a record campaigning on the hospital issue and is also a Monaghan candidate. SO may well take votes from Connolly.
At this stage there are also plenty of commuters living in Cavan and indeed Monaghan which could be fertile ground for the Greens.
At the last election he polled almost 2000 votes and the Greens polled 1100.
This time I'd expect him to poll around 5000 first preferences, providing him with an excellent base for the future.
I've got to run, but it's probably in here somewhere.AndrewM said:And extra dosh for us through public funding!
Whats the ratio of votes to euros gained in public funding? A lot of it is decided by the number of TDs but there's also certain percentage decided by total number of votes. Does anyone know what the formula for that is?
Marcus McCabe is his name. Nice Guy. He runs a rather strange religous group, part of the ritual is a tea drink which includes a banned substance. In scentencing the judge said he accepted that it was a genuine case for personal and religous use, but the law is the law.kerrynorth said:I saw in the papers in the last week or so that the previous 2002 general election candidate for the Greens was convicted under d.rug trafficing legislation. His name escapes me at the moment. Something to do with importing stuff that was banned. He got a big fine I think. Still and all not great news for the Greens having one of their election candidates convicted of d.rug trafficing!
