McDowell for Chancellor

So Michael McDowell is the new PD leader and his potential opponents have stitched up the party Presidency and Deputy Leadership - all without an election. That isn’t a cartel-type arrangement, it couldn’t be in the home of the free market, free-for-all competition known as the Progressive Democrats.

Now McDowell plans to target Fine Gael supporters. Just how many old Blue Shirts are still alive and voting, and how will they react to Oberfuhrer McDowell, who is far to the right of General O’Duffy?

Given that McDowell felt free to release Garda files to a selected pet journalist (Sam Smyth) re Frank Connolly’s alleged trip to Columbia on a false passport, how long before Revenue Commissioner files on opposition politicians and supporters start to surface?
