Q & A
Question: Why have you selected Fianna Fáil as the political party that you would like to join?
Response: Options are fairly limited. You either start one or join one. I think that if you polled 100 people in Dawson Street, probably 1% could tell you the real difference. I would call myself a compassionate capitalist. I totally believe in helping those who need to be helped, BUT you have to encourage a culture of Pride and self-achievement.
Question: Or are you just pulling their leg, as you don't really take them seriously?
Response: I think they could retain their former mantle of the party for the people.
Question: Would you like to possibly be An Taoiseach some day?
Question: Given some of the reaction from Fianna Fáil members in the Oireachtas, who have basically said that you would not be welcome in their party, what other political party would you consider approaching?
Question: Would you consider venturing into forming a New Political Party in Ireland?
Question: Have you had any conversations or meetings with any members of The Oireachtas, either Senators or TDs?
Question: With regard to the open letter published in a recent issue of the Sunday Independent, penned by Mary "Mammy" O'Rourke, to you, telling you to leave party politics alone, and in particular Fianna Fáil, and telling you to go ahead and run as an Independent. What, if any, response do you have to her?
Response: Amazing lady who I respect greatly. I was seated beside her on a TV show discussing millennials and it was like sitting beside my late mother. I wonder what advice she would give Micheal?
