The Full Young PDs ‘Dail Wars – Attack of The Socialists’ Leaflet December 6, 2010

I had previously posted the first page of this leaflet unaware that there was more. So here we have from the Young Progressive Democrats the Full ‘Dail Wars – Attack of The Socialists’ leaflet. Unreal.

Their Pizza Delivery Leaflet is just as ‘Unusual’

Many thanks to the sender.



The Full Young PD Pizza Delivery Leaflet complete with Desert Menu and Pizza Menu! December 4, 2010

Had previously posted the cover of this without realising that there was a Pizza Menu and Desert Menu with it also. A kind soul sent me the full leaflet and here it is.
From the Young Progressive Democrats “We Deliver”.

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.
They’ll be dressing them up in drag next.

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



“Dail Wars” and “Pizza Delivery” Bizzare Flyers from the Young Progressive Democrats September 20, 2010

I was sent these gems (many thanks), I’m not sure if there was anything on the backs of them. Dail Wars and Pizza Delivery, totally bizarre. Mary Harney as Luke Skywalker!
I gather that they were produced by the Young Progressive Democrats around 2005.

“Bringing the Dart to Dingle” and “Bringing the Olympics to Termonfeckin” -Dustin -The Poultry Party Election Posters July 20, 2010

The Famous ‘Bringing The Dart To Dingle’ Poster from Dustin the Turkey. He was running for The Poultry Party. He had previously run for Fianna Fowl.
It was rumoured that he got more votes than many of the candidates that stood.
Also included is a Bringing the Olympics to Termonfeckin poster which was a gibe at Gay Mitchells promise to bring the Olympics to Dublin.
I’ve also included an unofficial Dustin Poster for the Lisbon 2 Referendum produced in the aftermath of his Eurovision appearance.
They didn’t vote for us. Get Them Back. Vote No To Lisbon” states the Poster.
Interviewed about the how he was going to vote in Lisbon 2, Dustin was quoted as saying “I can’t understand why we need a treaty, what two Lisbons want to do is entirely up to them“.



Dustin The Turkey -“Vote Dustin No. 1 …. Bringing The Olympics to Termonfeckin” Poster July 16, 2010

First off many thanks to the great Turkey himself for sending this (and other items) on.
Dustins political career is of legend proportions.
In various elections, despite Dustin not officially standing, ballot papers with his name on them have supposedly outpolled some candidates on the ballot.
He has of course met many politicians in his time, even managing to secure an exclusive interview with George Mitchell (the US special envoy to Northern Ireland during the Peace Process)…. only to ask him about his days with WHAM…
The idea of “Bringing The Olympics to Termonfeckin” was inspired by the then Lord Mayor Gay Mitchells suggestion of Dublin hosting the Olympics.
