This afternoon.

Spotted in Glasnevin, Dublin 9.

Legit, anyone?

Thanks Judith Goldberger

    What happened to the Echo Chamber advertorial? Did it have to be pulled because of some claim made on it?

      I’m guessing that the show about journalism, didn’t quite adhere to journalistic best practices.

        I think it’s because Denis O’Brien is mentioned so much in it. I’d say Broadsheet may’ve got a legal letter.

      They approached the car, knocked on the window and when he lowered it down they ripped off their flak jackets to reveal Repeal The 8th t-shirts. Then they had a dance-off.

        In fairness if you squint and turn your head sharply left then right then left again, you can definitely see what appears to be the reflection of something blue in the right hand mirror of the white car on the left. Are you with me?

      Er, that looks like another taxi…unless the armed support unit are doing nixers …

      I doubt it Tom.
      However there may be an issue with the fact that it’s a licenced PSV and there might be a rule that prohibits campaigning? I don’t know though.
      However I suspect the motivation for posting this picture was the sheer horror of seeing someone support a cause the poster disagrees with.

        Or the sheer stupidity of losing half your fares. Mostly, people want a clean cab that doesn’t smell of overpowering air ‘freshener’ where they can have a bit of peace and quiet without having to listen to the driver pontificate.

        1. dan

          Most people won’t see the back of the tax before getting in.
          No evidence the driver will “pontificate”
          If there was a Repeal sticker, you wouldn’t have made this comment.

          Ta, Lilly the air freshener thing sure – my last taxi ride in Dublin from Connolly Station to Jurys Christchurch was, “Jesus, I’d hoped you’d be off to the airport” – I found myself apoligizing for my destination.

      A taxi driver wearing a REPEAL top? Definitely love to see that one posted.

  2. Gringo

    The driver is advertising that he or she is a very careful driver. Should be commended really.

    with any luck he crashes, preferably with someone scummy enough to use a hate speech-mobile inside.

    a useful addition to this thread would be finding out if any passengers refused to get into it
    ’cause I know what I’d do

    what do you mean by legit? I don’t understand this, are we unable to understand people have different opinions anymore?

      It’s a commercial vehicle.

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but as far as I know, commercial vehicles are subject to different laws compared with private vehicles, regardless of whether they are in use or not.

        1. mildred st. meadowlark

          To use an example I know of; neither the driver nor the passengers of a bus are permitted to smoke in the vehicle. It’s illegal, and rightly so. The same applies to a taxi driver, and their passengers, as it is a commercial vehicle.

          But, as I said, its just an example, and I don’t know where the law stands on the above.

    ‘I am a wh0r€’, and twice :-) Why is the heart not green and Benji Franklin’s face missing?
    Must be nice not to need stinky customers’ euros anymore.
