With democracy in chaos, Leo's aim is no cock-ups
Leo, Paschal and Eoghan have been talking calmly and pursuing a 'no-drama' style of government - but will it be enough
In the current TV adaptation of Stephen King's Mr Mercedes, a father calls to the door of retired detective Bill Hodges, played by Brendan Gleeson. The man's son Jerome has been helping Gleeson with some IT issues around a case he is working on.
Jerome's father has just one question for Hodges. Jerome is getting good grades in school and has the potential, against the odds, to do well in life. His father has a mantra and a philosophy around supporting his son, which is not to allow him to "f**k up".
Simple as that. No "f**k ups". Steady as she goes. The father is ever vigilant on his son's behalf and what he wants to know of Hodges is that he is not going to be the guy to f**k things up for Jerome.
