Even Enda Kenny secretly admitted to me that, as I was a non gay Gay and a non Catholic Fundamentalist Gay, he'd give me his vote, (even though I'm not Pat Cox).

I promised I'd withdraw from consideration for the Presidency and that I'd never say a word against the EU again. However, today, I have to get this off my chest. I can't sleep at night. I see the flying monkeys in my dreams. I also have to say, Europe is full of vipers. The political elites are sucking the lifeblood of the people of Ireland and every other country, the Belgians eat their children and...'
The interview was cut short by the intervention of the Gardai. Gay Byrne was taken to the Central Mental Hospital and has not been seen since.
