Shinners assemble. He beat the SF candidate in the Prez election. What was his percentage vote again?

Yes, that's the Agriculture Committee. He's clearly trying to keep the farmers on his side, despite his fairly abysmal participation record overall.

Should be fun alright.
I am sure Peter is planning to say something controversial to get the masses riled up. I'll put a bet on now that it will relate to immigration.

Hard to vote on anything when he spends most of his time jogging around Castlerea.

This is a real election this time, not the handy fixed setup of the presidential one.

He'll get into a bit more bother this time, he was lucky before.

Well, a little bit more real. Still a bit of a personality contest but a lot of real politicians in each race.

The poster claimed he had done nothing, but that clearly isn't case.

Just fact checked that for you because it didn't sound right. He has a voting attendance record of 95.44%, the second highest among Irish MEPs.

You pulled that 16% figure from a 2014 report, when apparently, his wife was ill in his first few months in Europe.

As do I - hard work that is.

Making millions would not be a neccesary qualification to make a good politician for me though.

Why let the truth get in the way of a baseless claim. ;-)

Casey obviously has no respect for the people of Ireland. This is another ego boost. The man should f*** off back to 'merica.
