In pursuit of Number 1s

Over the past three weeks I have gone on a World Tour of Ireland. It has been a wonderful experience. Imagine the electorate of councillors around the country being visited by candidates of diverse interest, motivations and experience. It is truly remarkable that so many councillors are friendly and civil after seeing so many candidates on the five panels. My views on politics are set out here on this site. I will do a full report on experiences after the election. The scariest piece so far was driving around the Ring of Kerry in fog and light rain staring at a winding white line in the middle of the road emerging from the gloom.
