    Has this not been settled already? I thought the final word was that bought advertisements like this are grand. Postering on lampposts, etc, with cable ties outside of the specified pre-election period is what’s not allowed.

      exactly, how can anyone fighting for one’s partially occupied country be illegal?

      the office of future Taoiseach

        Dude, it’s 2015 and RTE/BBC this week revealed survey results that this ‘occupation’ is democratically supported by a huge majority both sides of the border.

        I’m all for arguing for unity, but drop the re-enactment and quit pretending it’s 1922. That crap doesn’t change any hearts and minds.

          Poll of 2041 people is a rather flimsy premise to assert that its democratically supported occupation. So 0.032 of the population now speak for everyone?

          Oh you fell for the united Ireland spoof survey at a time when absolutely nobody in the country was even talking about it.

          That’s nothing more than another desperate strategy by wealthy backers of an unequal uber-capitalist economy and a weakened society that can’t fight it.

    It’s not illegal. It’s a paid for commercial poster – all parties and the main candidates of all parties and none are doing this all over the country.

    It’s also legal to advertise posters on lamposts, once there is planning permission obtained from the local council and the requirements contained within are followed.

    When a general election is called, election posters are legal, without prior permission for one week after the polling day, after which they must be removed.

    Two ex-FFers and Gerry – all the better to remind people that voting for SF gets you dodgy bastards with an even worse history.

    This election is going to be good craic

        It’s not government policies that are contributing to any tiny upswing. It’s low ECB rates and low energy costs which are the main driver of it. External forces are the reason.

        And wages are lower than they were in 2007 for most people and that’s not a correction, that’s thanks to a policy of devaluing labour and skills through policies like job bridge. Also, upward only leases has pushed many small businesses out to be replaced by international franchises who could afford to pay the rent while the competition was squeezed out.

        Fine Gael and Labour are scum who have no loyalty to the Irish people. Their loyalty is to international banking and the supervision of the nation state. They are prepared to sacrifice the welfare of their fellow citizens for an ideology of profit at all costs for the benefit of the few, served by the majority. It’s feudalism, 21st century style. In fact, it has more in common with communism than socialism does.

    What an extraordinary little property boarded up there, must have passed it a million times.

      You should open a wine and cheese shop there and then close it down after a couple of years and leave all your suppliers unpaid, like a good little speculator.

    Its perfectly legal. They presumably paid for it. Theres no “call to action” in terms of Vote 1,2,3 etc.
    Any notice the growing number of “Public Meeting” posters appearing on lampposts around the place?

  7. postmanpat

    Sinn Fein/IRA forgot to put an extra “better for” tick box saying “get all 32 counties” which is and always will be there NUMBER ONE priority. They do not care about anything else. Anyone who falls for these people is a fool of a person themselves.
