    And invisible people have invisible rights?

  2. JCD says:

    Ha ha! Touche! Good one Cian!

  3. Bit lost on you isn’t it Cian?

  4. Cian says:

    No, I don’t think it is. Invisible people, like the man pictured in this link need rights too…

  5. James D says:

    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,
