Former Minister and Fianna Fail TD Batt O’Keeffe didn’t stand in the 2011 General Election. This is a letter from him to a ‘supporter’, the only problem being that the sender (many thanks) notes ….
“The funny thing is I never in my life canvassed for Batt, let alone have great memories of times shared with him”

I thought the recent Young PD ones I posted were bad…… then along came this.

It’s on the Ogra Fianna Fail Website and facebook pages.

Funny thing is that the slogan on the poster for the actual movie is way more apt.
“There is no Plan B”
