Former Late Late Show pianist Frank McNamara from his 2007 General Election campaign in Dublin South Central. He polled 474 votes (result at electionsireland.org)
‘Orchestrating a better Future’ has to be one of the corniest slogans around.
The aim to “cut income tax to 18% and 38%” seems a long way away now.
A much better slogan would’ve been “My Wife Presented Where In The World, You Know!”. Probably would’ve won him a few votes.
Some great days on the Campaign Trail with these leaflets ! DSC was a pleasure to canvass. The reaction to Frank was incredible ! I felt at least 1500 votes ! How wrong I was 😦
