‘Back to life’ for Anthony
BUSINESSMAN ANTHONY FITZGERALD is philosophical about his overwhelming defeat saying he is ‘ happy to get his life back'.
‘ There were 24 candidates on the ballot paper and nobody had heard of me before (I put my name forward) but I am glad I did it. I am glad to have had the experience at least once in my life but I don't see myself re-entering the fray again. I am slightly disillusioned by it but that is democracy in action.
‘I was pretty well received at the door but I was late to the game. I put myself forward because of my sheer indignation with the state of the country.’
