News that Blur drummer David Rowntree is to stand for the British Labour Party in a forthcoming by-election should provide food for thought for the Irish political establishment.

Jaded party hacks could feel it’s time to take a punt on a couple of local indie stars in an effort to get the vote out. After all, there are only so many former GAA luminaries who can fit onto an average lamp-post.
