The Next Gear backs a winner, Michael D wins Presidency

If you were tuned into us way back last February, you would have noticed a little video that caused some debate because it had nothing to do with cars. While out and about Bob rocked up outside Government buildings only to find a load of protesters and a small man who, very quietly, announced that he wanted to run for President of Ireland.

Bob smelled a story and muscled in among the other cameras and news folk that were there and had the clip and story out before it was on the news.

Here we are months later with the end in sight and that same very pleasant man has all but won one of the dirtiest election campaigns in living memory.

Anyway, best of luck to Michael and his team, we knew that we had a winner as soon as he spoke to us on video.
