Yes, of course, you're right, although strictly speaking we are only commenting on a different manifestation of anonymity, not on real identity. But, I won't quibble...

Actually, I wasn't strictly ranking (Batt O'Keeffe wouldn't be in my top three), more stream-of-consciousness dribbling random thoughts that came to mind at the time. But you can let it stand as is...

I posted saying I wanted Willie O Dea but he is listed as the worst. I even picked his slogan after he is Taoiseach. Willie?, yes he will.

You can not be blamed because with 5000 posts here and there when have I praised an Irish politician of any party. Maybe a reference to Kemmy, Michael D and Gregory with half hearted praise but Wille on q and a won me over
