Martin Upbeat On Fianna Fáil ‘Disarray’
The leader of Fianna Fáil has reacted positively to reports that his party is “in disarray” following the announcement that Brian Crowley will not seek a Presidential nomination.
Crowley, who is Emperor Of Munster, vowed yesterday to pull out of the race for the Áras. He is the ninetieth candidate not in the race to pull out this week. Mr. Crowley was clearly upset that leader Micheál Martin had gone on a ‘solo run’ in asking popular broadcaster, biker and safety supremo Gay Byrne to run instead of someone from Fianna Fáil.
However Mr. Martin fought back today, claiming that for Fianna Fáil to be in disarray was a major achievement. “At this stage in the rebuilding of the party, many thought we would be in “turmoil”, ‘meltdown’ or ‘prison'”, enthused Corkonian Martin at a fundraising pickpocket campaign in the English Market this morning. “By merely being in disarray my leadership and the party are confounding the detractors. By November, I confidently predict that we will be ‘at sixes and sevens’, and if things go well we should be ‘all over the shop’ by June”.
Meanwhile Eamon “MiniDev” Ó Cuiv has refused to rule out seeking a Fianna Fáil nomination for the Presidency. Supporters say he is interested in running and has kept his granddaddy’s presidential pants in running order “just in case”.
