And invisible people have invisible rights?
Ha ha! Touche! Good one Cian!
Bit lost on you isn’t it Cian?
No, I don’t think it is. Invisible people, like the man pictured in this link need rights too…
Indeed…or is she going to call it the Laryngitis Party?
The voice to the voiceless is at 8% just a few days after launching her campaign.
The Fianna Fáil-appointed Senator Deirdre de Burca is at 6% though she appears to have spent a fortune on posters, billboards and an Adsel campaign.
Here’s an extract from a letter on the proliferation of posters (Deirdre’s) in the Thursday 21st May’s Irish Times:
……….On driving down the N11 from the traffic lights at Cabinteely village to the next set of traffic lights at Cornelscourt, I was blinded by the sheer volume of posters on every lamp post. One particular candidate had a poster on each lamp post between the village and Cornelscourt, which is just over half a kilometre. I counted 22 posters on that stretch, and on the way home I counted 18, until I realised that the posters were on either side of the lamp posts, totalling 80 posters in a half kilometre stretch.
Considering these are on a dual carriageway, perhaps the posters on the back of the lamp posts were for the benefit of the walkers, or indeed the people on buses who are travelling backwards?
Dare I mention which councillor is bold enough to do such a thing while also being so interested in the environment? It’s Déirdre de Búrca of the Green Party. I certainly hope she has availed of the bike scheme and popped them on her back carrier and hung them herself. – Yours, etc,
