An open letter to President Higgins
Heartfelt congratulations, Michael D, but don’t get carried away – and please start being yourself again
Dear Michael D,
This is an open letter to you on your re-election. Firstly, heartfelt congratulations on winning the people’s vote to become, once again, Ireland’s first citizen.
The Irish people judged that it was richly deserved, in part because your last seven years were generally successful, albeit with a few red-cheek moments. That is no mean feat given the public inclination towards cynicism when it comes to politicians.
