David McCann, the Deputy Editor of Slugger O’Toole is now advocating Fantasy Politics. He has invited his readers to put together a “fantasy” Norn Iron Executive. There is a certain logic to this. David McCann has already advocated following the Election Campaign on Twitter.
Politics is not a spectator sport. A football match cannot be watched on Teletext.
Still it cant be that hard to pick eight people that Slugger O’Toole would like to see in the Executive.
Quintin, Allan, Trevor, Robin, Patrick, Dominic, Andy and Malachi. (Gerry, Ian and Nicholas possibly).
That was easy.
I looked at D McCann’s Fantasy Executive and found it disturbing that such a line up could be seen as a fantasy.
Well…pretty pathetic choices from a PhD.
He seemed unaware that there are quotas for parties…of SF 3, SDLP 1 , DUP 3, UUP 1.
Yet he picked SF 2 SDLP 2 DUP 4.
This isnt Politics. Its Fan Boy Fiction.
Presumably nobody in UUP takes him seriously enough to give him an interview.
