They want your vote but won't tell you when.
Fine Gael canvas through the letterbox for an election they have not even announced.
The pamphlet pictured was delivered to many homes in the Dublin 4 and surrounding areas today, January 13th. It might not look like anything to get too excited by or even pay much attention to but it is quite a remarkable document in its own right. For the first time in the experience of this writer Fine Gael have started actively canvassing for votes in an election that has been given no date yet. In a rather flagrant display of how removed this particular political class have become from the citizens of the country they are happy to ask us to vote for them but don't have the decency to tell us when.
