Gerry Adams Has Entered A Twitter Competition To Win A Psychedelic Llama Jumper

The Irish Republican leader reveals his true colours. And they’re very, very bright.

1. Gerry Adams, leader of Sinn Fein and the face of the Irish Republican movement, really wants to win this psychedelic llama jumper.

On Saturday afternoon Gerry Adams retweeted this message from @Dory, a spoof account based on a fish from the film Finding Nemo. It promises that three lucky Twitter users can win this amazing sweater.

2. Competition entrants are required to follow @Dory to be in with a chance of winning. Gerry Adams doesn’t follow many people but he’s made an exception on this occasion.

He really, really wants that jumper.

3. But with 1,800 other people having already entered the competition the odds are against him. So BuzzFeed has mocked up how he’d look.
