Gay Mitchell – Who?

Channel 4 News did an in depth report on the presidential election covering all the candidates with the exception of Mary Davis and Gay Mitchell.

Was it just sloppy research on the part of Channel 4 that they missed Gay Mitchell who is, in effect, a government candidate or was it that they just didn’t notice him – I think the latter.

Given his right wing and deeply conservative/Catholic outlook the Fine Gael candidate was never going to get my number one vote but after reading a ‘sermon’ by Catholic militant, David Quinn, Mitchell is now off my list altogether.
