Martina Devlin: Bacik's campaign takes a sweet turn as she picks up votes from the foodies
LIFE is like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get. Especially if you stand for election, when voters can take against you as easily as take to you.
Senator Ivana Bacik's campaign took a favourable turn yesterday, however, when stallholder Gavin Roche of 'The Truffle Fairy' surprised her with a box of gourmet chocolates, saying he'd like to see a left-wing government in place. No argument from the Labour candidate on that.
A vote and confectionery -- now that's what any woman would call a result.
