I’m a Ronseal Politician

Direct quote from Michael McDowell, the shiny new leader of the PDs on the 6.01 News.
As anyone who read this post will know, I am more fond of Michael McDowell, than I would be of say, Liz O’Donnell or Tom Parlon – and honestly, did they even think they could win the leadership contest?
But what does McDowell mean? He used the line in relation to his straight open, up and down persona he has created. Equally though it could mean that he identifies with the layer of noxious slime that you spend ages rubbing on to bits of wood that protects against wind, rain and liberals.

Presumably he does exactly what it says on the tin. Of course, it says many things on the tin, such as "Highly toxic and inflammable. Do not allow to come into contact with skin"

Parlon never had a hope of being leader, but he played a blinder and is now party President and in pole position should McDowell come a cropper. Like or hate him, you have to admire Mr Parlon's rapid accent. His first few days as a TD were spent as one half of the PD team negotiating the programme for Government. Then his consituency rival Brian Cowen threw him the hospital pass also known as "decentralisation", which has curtailed his impact.
