Brian Brennan: Aras race has descended into a farcical soap opera
WHEN we pick up our ballot papers on October 27 and contemplate the list of presidential candidates on offer, it would be nice to have the option of placing our X in a box labelled "none of the above".
As things stand, it seems quite possible that a majority of voters would choose the "none of the above" option. In that event, the presidency should be put on hold for four or five years.
We could tell the IMF that the consequent savings were yet another austerity measure, further evidence of Irish determination to reach the targets set by the troika.
