    Dem Greens are slick

    Thanks to greeninkpen and mamam poulet for this. Is this the smoothest and most natural party political broadcast you have ever seen?

    Ok. Ok. It’s a bit amateurish (I love the photographer getting in the way as they go in the door and the way it just fizzles out at the end). But at least they are trying. In fairness to Ciaran Cuffe, his political blog is brilliant – a step above any TD or Senator in the Dail. And he uses Twitter as well as anyone I know.

    At least they are trying! And Fianna Fail’s website hasn’t ran that smoothly so far, despite all the yoyos they have put into it.

    • Here’s an article I read recently about how Denmark, a small country not unlike Ireland, is capitalising in a big way from energy. It’s well worth a read….http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1881646,00.html

      As for Fianna Fáil’s website, not a word in Irish despite featuring a ‘Gaeilge’ button which ironically turns the word ‘Gaeilge’ into ‘English’ but has no other effect when pressed. It’s also a testament to a party which has more money than sense, going to the USA for a website which could have been produced as effectively and probably cheaper [think of the airmiles] at home in Ireland. This from the party that exhorted housewives not to shop in Newry as it was more patriotic to shop in the Daorstát…
