Duffy not to run for Europe…

No great surprise to hear that tonight that (as predicted last night on Citybeat radio) Colin Duffy’s eldest daughter announced he would not be standing for Europe, citing the shortage of time to get a full blown campaign together… Instead the family will be concentrating on a campaign to have him released from jail. There was a small crowd of about 100 outside the locked gates of Kilwilkie Community Centre in the pouring rain… Again, understably, the council refused to let the group use the hall for its meeting tonight
