‘I Don’t Have A Gun And Am Not Belonging To Any Armed Gang Or Organisation’


Well this is reassuring.

Every election brings out its share of, shall we say, ‘alternative’ candidates – and this one is no exception, as proven by this utterly insane leaflet.

Charlie Keddy has been standing in the Wicklow/East Carlow constituency (alongside his trusty beard as a running mate) for pretty much as long as anyone can remember.

And while most of his pamphlet comes straight out of the populist playbook – boo property taxes, boo Irish Water, boo the government – he does make one declaration that we find rather assuring.

Or terrifying.


‘I don’t have a gun and am not belonging to any armed gang or organisation’

You know.

Just in case you were wondering.
