Seriously lads, a candidate whose central plank is the community with a suicide rate multiple times the national average?

That's the presidential agenda for the next 7 years, travellers?

Well his attentions inadvertently bring more understanding of travellers then no harm.

What's your point, if there is one.

Yes, but my apologies as it has wiped out everyone's original vote.

In true Irish referendum style you will have to vote again!

i dont think anyone said it was his central plank> what people are drawn to is someone speaking his mind, and continuing to do it in the face of the other bluffers in the race. Its not his position on travellers per se, rather his compunction to say what he thinks rather than what he thinks people want to hear.

This is better served in the main thread but to answer it if I can. Perhaps he is perceived as the most honest. Perhaps that is worth more than gold these days all things considered.

As someone once said here, sincerity is overrated, the axe murderer chasing you down the street is sincere in their intent.

I don't think he's particularly presidential, but what appeals to me is not so much that he speaks his mind, nor the actual content of what he says, but the fact he is actually prepared to defend his opinions and refuse to be cowed into an meaningless apology just to appease the outraged who are pompously calling on him to withdraw his remarks.

Plenty of Brits defend the great hunger as a necessity, doesn't mean they're worthy of respect.

Just I have a friend who is thinking about climbing it.
The advice from most who have done it is 'dont'.

The Pin.

I'm not being derogatory, but this place has always been a safe space for dissent from the establishment view/status quo, right?
