You can ask that he articulate these principles to the electorate in advance. The voters of Dublin South were totally unaware they voted in an anti women god bother until after the fact.He articulated what many people felt about the banking industry and how it went so horribly astray in Ireland. There was nothing in it for him to bring us this news. A politician of talent, honesty and principle - you can't ask for much more.
That said he was better than most of the crop.
