George Lee- It’s my ball and I’m going home. #glee

George Lee has resigned from Fine Gael and has resigned his seat in the Dáil for the most petulant, self-indulgent reasons. Quitting the party is one thing, but to resign the seat after 9 months spits in the eye of the Dublin South electorate. I’d be surprised if there’s more than a 40% turn out in the inevitable by-election to come.
Quitting a Dáil seat in frustration at not being able to change things in 9 months is a complete contradiction in terms and a copout that Sarah Palin would be proud of.

  1. How long do you give it before he starts on the self help talk show circuit with “How I recovered from self-destrutive pathological attention seeking”, so that he can help others with the same illness.

  2. If he was disgusted with Fine Gael he could have resigned the party whip. Resigning his seat sends a whole other message – mostly, to the people who elected him.
