Will Simon Harris be the youngest member of the new Dail?

Whats the significance of the picture?
It's to provide hope for every geeky looking average student out there that if they kiss enough arse and hang out in the right circles they too can become a pointless overpaid backbencher.

You're at the cutting edge of political thinking in this country.

Your cogency cuts to the very heart of the matter in a way that our current contemporary commentators can only dream of.

You've forgotten more in one morning than an army of political intellectuals would dream up in a lifetime.

You Nanny, need to have a chat with your shrink.

You do have issues, you know!

And I only point out the obvious for you.

Maybe I'm just fired up?

Fired up and ready to go!

Jesus, will FG stop copying Obama. There's more charisma in a pair of soaking wet socks than in the whole FG parliamentary party.

Anyone who takes the seat of Dick Roche gets my praise, regardless of his failure to pass the Nano test

True, a small crumb of comfort indeed for the Wicklow / East Carlow (wherever that is!) electorate, seeing the back of Dick....

However, will our new kid on the block, Harris, prove any different in time to come? I've never seen him 'round my way', even during the Election campaign. I watched him on RTE one night in that campaign, he was on with a motley bunch of prospective first time TD's, and it was screamingly obvious to see that young Mr. Harris craved a front bench position in Team Enda in time to come, a vacuous soundbyte on every topic, like a kid let loose for sixty seconds of beat the clock in a sweet shop. He's a political careerist, one who will make sure that the people of Dalkey-Upon-Sea (South), otherwise known as Greystones, continue to feather his little nest....

What do you require of him to do when he comes 'round your way'?

When he comes?!!! Nothing of interest south of the Beehive, Sir! The great unwashed and the great unrepresented electorate of south county Wicklow reside in blissful unrepresented ignorance that shall, sadly, continue for quite some time to come! :-(

Just to point out Harris is in that picture as a council candidate not a student. He never attended Trinity

He looks and talks like a little girl. Can't take him seriously.
And having read this Nano, I now know exactly who not to take seriously.

The young member is the future of Ireland, and the King knows this.

He has values, he is sincere and honest, and he will one day lead his party, and may well lead his country.

But you will only be a distasteful memory when all of this comes to pass Nano.

And perhaps fittingly so!
