McGregor, who is under investigation by the Irish police for his controversial comments on Dublin riots, wrote: “Potential competition if I run. Gerry [Adams], 78. Bertie [Ahern]. 75. Enda [Kenny], 74. Each with unbreakable ties to their individual parties’ politics. Regardless of what the public outside of their parties feels. These parties govern themselves v govern the people. 


“Or me, 35. Young, active,passionate, fresh skin in the game. I listen. They would genuinely be held to account regarding the current sway of public feeling. I’d even put it all to vote. There’d be votes every week to make sure. I can fund. It would not be me in power as President, people of Ireland. It would be me and you.”  Extending his support, Musk said:  “I think you could take them all single-handed. Not even fair.”
