Mehole wouldn't like that. Would trigger a by election and probable seat loss for FF.
BK must think his chances of ministerial office are completely dead.
He's probably right tbf!!

Brian gave 30 years of his life to politics, also...

Until his health problems emerged in 2012, he had one of the best attendance records of any MEP in Brussels and Strasbourg.

A good man who worked hard for Ireland and very approachable asI spoke to him on a few occasions and he even remembered both my brothers who were at school with him. I wish him the very best for the future.

He is a decent skin, knew him back in the day, he sang in a Rock an Roll band.

54 and he gave over 30 years to politics, eaten bread is easily forgotten.

A saying I got from my dear old mam and it's damn accurate in this case.

I am strongly opposed to his political views - which I think have become more unpleasant over time - but I have never found him an unpleasant person. He developed considerable arrogance during his time as an MEP in my experience, but that seems to happen a lot of long-term parliamentarians and never went so far as to make him a pain in the arse to meet.

Having said that, when it became apparent to him that he could not fulfil his duties as a public representative I feel the honourable thing to do would have been to resign. There is a reserve list in place for precisely this sort of development.

Spot on, he should not have run in 2014 not to mention the braindead idiots that voted for him. Just another mouth stuck in the trough. He had the poorest attendance record back in 2013 before the last election
