Ian O'Doherty: Darren Scully? Wasn't he the racist?
So, hold the front page, get the bunting ready and set your faces to stunned - Darren Scully has been allowed back into the ever lovin' arms of Fine Gael.
Darren who? Okay, a quick recap - Darren Scully, you may recall, was the man hounded out of his hugely influential role as, ahem, Mayor of Naas when he said that he no longer felt comfortable representing the burgeoning black, African community because he found them to be "rude and quick to play the race card".
It was a comment that was delivered with the usual subtlety and sophisticated nuance as we have come to expect from Irish politicians – none whatsoever.
