      It looks like they went with the purple because Roisin already had a really nice purple coat she wanted to wear

    I’m sorry, but even if I’d never heard of them, the SocDems would still have my No.1 on colour coordination alone.

    The Renua crowd look as grim as their prospects – byeeee guuuuyyysssss xxx

      Yeah most of these parties could do witth some Art/Branding direction. Sinn Fein Design, colours and Type looks like half price margarine. Renua’s stuff looks like Jesus pamphlets from the 80’s. I don’t know where to begin with the AAA/PBP. It looks like they haven’t even thought about this stuff at all! (They haven’t)

        AAA/PBP’s pressers always look so grim. Bad lighting, bad wallpaper, a few posters designed by their mams. It’s like “we need a decorative theme… POVERTY!” but it just looks like they couldn’t be holed.

          Also, Ruth Coppinger could crack a feckin joke once in a while. She is by far the most miserable person in Ireland.

    Pity Enda Kenny didn’t hold more press conferences while he was Taoiseach. Only interested in appearing in public when he’s trying to hold onto power.

      I think the idea was to keep Enda in the background. Every time he’s appeared in a press conference he’s dropped a clanger of some sort. Noonan’s face is representative of all FG candidates when Enda appears in front of a mic.. “oh god, whats he going to say now..”

    Donnacha O’Laoghaire looks like a first year student who borrowed his mate’s suit and tie for the afternoon…

    The Blueshirts chose a BMW showroom for their photos the other day.
    Today they choose the The Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
    Bord Gais experts advised the government you may remember, that there was no need to have expensive water meters installed in order to bill households. FG chose instead to go ahead with the opportunity to make DoB some money.
