DECLAN Ganley is a spit-the-dummy loser, a spoiled child of a candidate who confronts imminent failure by halting an entire election count for some real or imagined procedural handling of his votes.

He finally faced up to reality in Castlebar last night when he conceded defeat in the North West Euro constituency and vowed to bow out of politics altogether.

But his earlier decision to throw his toys out of the pram in the count centre will not help when he looks back on what is left clinging to the wreckage of Libertas across Europe this morning.
