The launch of the Labour Party’s #MakeItHappen campaign aimed at encouraging supporters of the referendum to take practical steps to get more people to vote Yes. The #MakeItHappen campaign will be rolled out over the course of the next three weeks. The first activity of the #MakeItHappen campaign is to talk to older people and to persuade them of the need to vote Yes.

        Fair play to them.
        But they’re toxic – the best thing they can do is keep quiet and yet YesEquality get it over the line.

    Thanks for campaigning for what’s right in this particular referendum Joan + Labour.

    However, you’re still doomed to obscurity thanks to your support for everything that’s wrong with the running of this country, & it’s way too late to do anything about it now.

      What, like bringing the country back from the calamity of the previous Government? You think everything right with the country is buying votes by giving money away?

        Just while your there Miko, the last government were a disgrace, & this government are the worst government we’ve ever had. I voted labour. Never again. Take that back to your superiors.

    Look at them there with their iPhones

    How many water meters have been installed in Leinster House? Anyone?

    “all of the protesters I’ve seen seem to have extremely expensive phones, tablets and video cameras” – Joan Burton

    Maybe we’re paying politicians too much too.

  4. Clampers Outside!

    Numpties launching campaign targeting ‘elderly voters’ conduct photo-op with props used to excite tweens and kids… Keep up the nonsense Joan, you are one hell of a class-A numpty

      Get the kids to get onto their grannies. Older voters are more likely to vote and vote no.

        That’s not the campaigns intention though is it, it’s to talk to the elderly directly.

        I commend the campaign for that, to talk to the elderly directly, but the cynic in me just sees Joan more interested in posing for what she believes is a good photo op rather than focusing on who she is talking to. She’s politicking for the election during the referendum campaign, more interested in being seen to do right, than doing it.

        Did I mention I’m feeling uber cynical this morning…..

  5. Truth in the News

    If the likes of White and Burton keep campaiging for a Yes they will end
    end up with a No as they belong to a toxic brand and ethos…the Labour
    Party, of course they purchased the phones too.
