Labour stoop to dirty politics - offensive advert

If it wasn't enough for Joan to be falling into shallow water this week it now seems that Labour are sinking fast into deep waters with an advert attacking SF and FF.

Ironically it was Labour who decided to get into bed with FG and go against their own voters with adverts like the one below

So for them to publish the latest advert seems to be one hell of a cheek!


[font=Georgia, Verdana, Arial]Criticism for Labour ad showing Gerry Adams and Micheál Martin as gay couple on wedding day[/font]

[font=Georgia, Verdana, Arial][font=Arial, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]It shows Adams and Martin on the plinth at Leinster House with the slogan, “This is one marriage we should vote NO to this year.”[/font][/font]

[/font]
[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]Speaking on [font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]Marian Finucane on RTÉ Radio 1[/font] this morning Fine Gael’s Brian Hayes described the ad as “cheeky but funny”.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif][font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]The Labour party are making a serious point here that if you vote for Mister Martin and Fianna Fáil … you could end up with Mister Adams and Sinn Féin. That’s the point.[/font][/font]
[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]TD John McGuinness said, “It tries to make a serious message in relation to Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil, while at the same time Gerry Adams has said that he would not go into partnership with Fianna Fáil”.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif][font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]It’s typical of negative campaigning, it’s desperation from the Labour side because they’re in serious difficulty and if Fianna Fáil were not doing as well – and the opinion polls show this – then Labour wouldn’t be doing this.[/font][/font]
[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]A Fianna Fáil spokesperson told [font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]TheJournal.ie [/font]that the party is “blue in the face” stating that Fianna Fáil will not enter into government with Sinn Féin: “We have said it time and time again.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif][font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]Labour’s campaign shows that Joan Burton’s party is clutching at straws in desperation. The stakes are very high for Labour, so they have to go for the negative campaign to get noticed.”[/font][/font]

Student magazine stuff by Labour

Also SSM is now one of our sacred cows  - beyond criticism.

The Labour house magazine, Irish Times, will be sniffy about this

It seems many Labour officals are hugely angry about this, I doubt it will ever be offically launched now but it does tell you the mindset of Labour.

Now FG have gone to Tory HQ to see how they got re-elected I have no doubt they will stoop eqally low too.
