Fine Gael flop George Lee is only a wet week out of politics but that isn’t stopping constituency rival Senator Alex White from letting the grass grow under his feet.
Alex was the shoe-in to win the Dublin South by-election last year – until Fine Gael parachuted the former RTE Economic Editor into the race.
But Alex hasn’t gone away – just last weekend he sent a letter to all constituents in Dublin South reminding them that he is still working for the good of the area.
“The recent resignation of George Lee as TD came as a bolt from the blue. Understandably, many people felt shocked and disappointed that he had abandoned his political ambition so prematurely,” wrote Alex, not afraid to mince his words!
