There’s Jim and there’s James. They’re both barristers. And they’re both involved in the current by-election in Dublin Bay South. They are minor figures on the political landscape, no better or worse than dozens of their like. Currently, they’re being crudely packaged and sold to us as major players, with crucial roles to play in political life.

The campaigns hoping to boost these two unremarkable men suggest the current state of Irish politics lies somewhere between the shallow and the ridiculous.
