A 1999 leaflet from the Anti Racism Campaign aimed at then Fianna Fail TD Ivor Callely. In 1997 he had accused asylum seekers of begging off their neighbours and “carrying on a culture that is not akin to Irish culture”, such as the “bleeding of lambs in the back garden” and in 1999 he called on the government to “get tough” on asylum seekers and “throw out” what he refers to as “illegal immigrants”. Claiming that Ireland has become a “soft target”, he has said that asylum seekers are coming here to “cash in on the benefits available”.
Many thanks to the sender.

Ivor Callelys guide to Budget 2011… with nice FF style logo… and more January 7, 2011

The fact that Ivor is sending this leaflet out leads me to think he’ll be standing again.
Ivor Calellys guide to Budget 2011.

First off there is the tagline under Ivors name

The heartwarming appeal from Ivor at the end of the leaflet
We must remain vigilant as we move forward learning from past mistakes and not settling for less than our full potential. We must look beyond our current difficulties and as resilient people we can and we will get through this difficulty.
I am asking people to be positive, to have hope and confidence.

And then the sneaky FF style logo!

historical democratic Parliament.
