Voting for Norris
Published 26/06/2011 | 05:00
Sir -- David Norris is in no uncertain terms the finest candidate for the presidency. The Irish people are fed up of failing politicians, and Norris is a fine statesman. Other candidates are approaching the presidency at the end of average political careers. There is no need for a politician in the Aras.
David Norris is an honest, independent, eloquent voice and is ideal for the role. He embodies sophistication and represents a body of people that transcends all generations. Young people admire his eccentricity and more mature people appreciate his flawless manner and charisma.
Following Mary McAleese is a mammoth task for anyone, but Norris may be the man for the job. He is our finest statesman and an exceptional public speaker. Inspiring your country is half the battle as president, and David Norris could spark a fire in the Irish people that we haven't seen before.
