Dublin's new lord mayor will be a self-serving, visionless hack

There's a bit more than a snowball's chance in Hell that Dubliners may get to vote directly for a lord mayor in June. That's the target date, according to the Green Party. They have the inside track on what's going because their leader, John Gormley, is Minister for the Environment, so this falls into his bailiwick.

The lord mayor will have 'strong executive powers' whenever he or she is elected, either in June or the autumn.
