And it’s goodnight from them….

If only those who agreed with them had voted for them.
Was at the last meeting of Dublin South East Progressive Democrats last night, and a curiously upbeat affair it was too.  Both Michael McDowell and Mary Harney spoke very graciously not just about the party but about the people who had campaigned for it over the years.
I am forever meeting people who supported the PDs’ policies, but never voted PD, assuming someone else would do it for them.
As with a lot of things, if you don’t use it regularly, it withers and falls off.
Speaking to FF people about it, they can’t comprehend the fact that although the party is dead, many PDs are quite proud of the party’s record.

To FF people, I suppose, the doing is not as  important as the being.
