How come the faces and bodies of the No and Yes campaigns are all white? We live in a multi-cultural society. One that votes.

Anyone?

This afternoon.

At a meeting of the Oireachtas health committee.

Minister for Health Simon Harris mentions those posters outside his constituency office..

After which, Senator Ronán Mullen asked the minister:

“What I’m asking you is, is there a disconnect between disapproving of the posters and being in favour of the killing of children in that way?”

Mr Harris responded that he “disassociated”himself from the language of Senator Mullen and that he will campaign for a Yes vote.

I encountered an individual tearing down ‘Vote Yes’ posters…

According to ROSA, the posters cost €6 each.

As if It hadn’t sufficiently whetted appetites for season 2 (which starts on October 27th), Netflix promos its landmark series with a range of appropriately low res tributes to posters from 80s horror movies Firestarter, Alien (a few months short of the 80s in fairness), Stand By Me, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Evil Dead.

Pat Leahy, in the Irish Times this morning, reports:

Meetings to discuss a possible new government will continue today as Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil intensify their efforts to woo Independent TDs in advance of Wednesday’s vote for taoiseach.

Fianna Fáil will hold an all-day meeting with the group of five rural Independents. Tomorrow it will meet the six members of the Independent Alliance.

Front bench Fianna Fáil TD Jim O’Callaghan dismissed reports that the party’s mood towards coalition with Fine Gael was softening.

And party sources said the Leitrim Fianna Fáil organisation last week voted 50 votes to none against coalition with Fine Gael in an example of grassroots feeling, which is strongly against any such deal.

Meanwhile, earlier…

And yesterday…
