“..Property Tax is unfair and inequitable..” Leaflet from Olivia Mitchell -Fine Gael -Dublin South June 5, 2012

Another Anti Property Tax leaflet from Fine Gael in the mid 90s, this time from then Councillor and now TD for Dublin South, Olivia Mitchell.
The line
“This is an ill considered tax with no economic or social objective other than revenue raising for the government at the expense of those already struggling to provide for their families.”
Is as apt today as it was then.

As positive looking a leaflet as you’ll find. Fine Gael candidate Jim O’Leary from the 2007 General Election in Dublin South.
Despite it being mass produced, the smile on the candidate and the “P.S if your number 1 vote is committed, please give me your highest preference” make it almost personal.
