George, Deirdre, Willie, now Trevor: Who’s Next?
Deaglán de Bréadún
It’s reminiscent of Pegeen Mike’s wan speech at the end of the Synge’s masterpiece: “I’ve lost him surely, I’ve lost my only playboy of the western world.” Trevor is gone! Hard to believe.
Needless to say there is much muttering and mumbling. Why was the story leaked to the Herald now? Inevitably fingers are pointing at the larger coalition party.
Perhaps. A little bit of “vingeance” for what the Greens did to Willie last week? They were reluctant executioners it has to be said.
Maybe it was some other source.
Trevor, as has been said, is the father-figure of the Greens. Mister Clean. Pottering about in his garden among the organic kumquats or whatever is growing there.
What strange virus has gripped the body politic that everyone is resigning? Who’s next?
But it wasn’t smart to write that letter.
It was smart and principled to resign asap. That will stand to him. We ain’t heard the last of Trevor Sargent. He might end up in the Áras yet, if this plays the right way.
