Fine Gael Put Up FF-looking Anti-FF Posters
The cheeky chappies in Fine Gael have been stealing Irish Election’s thunder by doing some moratorium busting of their own. I travel through Dublin city every day, from west to east and north to south and didn’t spot one of the posters below until today. However Adam Maguire informed me via Twitter that they have been around since yesterday.
I suspect they went up late yesterday, probably just after the last commercial radio show of the day – thus avoiding the moratorium on radio shows today. It’s the type of thing that The Late Debate wouldn’t lower themselves to – too entertaining – but it would make good fodder for Fianna Fáil vs Fine Gael on the The Last Word or The Right Hook had there been nothing to bust today. I wonder if this tactic is actually legal, surely Fianna Fáil have copyright on their own logo and could thus sue Fine Gael for misrepresentation. Any barristers or solicitors reading? Simon? Aoife? Care to fill us in? Is this illegal or just cheeky?
