Bray People - - Front Page -

DEPUTY Be­han’s shock res­ig­na­tion from Fianna Fáil over the med­i­cal cards de­ba­cle has left him in the dol­drums in the Dail, but with huge back­ing from or­di­nary peo­ple who have most to lose from Brian Leni­han’s bud­get blun­ders.

‘It will be a very lonely place for me and I’m not looking for­ward to it,’ said the now In­de­pen­dent TD of his pend­ing re­turn to the Dáil, no longer a mem­ber of the ma­jor- ity clique.

Taoiseach Brien Cowen said that on a per­sonal level he felt very dis­ap­pointed at Deputy Be­han’s de­ci­sion, but among the elec­torate the op­po­site was the case.

‘I have had el­derly res­i­dents in Bray ring­ing me and cry­ing down the phone to con­grat­u­late me on my res­ig­na­tion,’ said Be­han.
