Is politics about policy or personality? Luke Ming Flanagan who came kicking and screaming into our lives over ten years ago campaigning on the legalisation of cannabis and in more recent years to save turf cutting on the bog. But who is the real Ming and why do the rural public love him, support him, take his ideas seriously and to their hearts? (the nick name that stuck because of his trademark goatee like Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon.)
Henry McKean spent time with MEP Luke Ming Flanagan in Athy County Kildare, one of the 13 counties in the European Parliament Midlands Northwest Constituency, where Luke met secret female admirers.
