I would say those images sell well internationally.

The rules state that you must remove any badges, etc., when within 50 meters of the polling station, so I did. Very annoying to see a few really old men going in to vote while wearing their no badges and nobody telling them off. Typical.


I saw no yes, or no badges myself, but I did see two women with very young children, their message was clear IMO, who should I complain to

Of the six people in my polling station 2 x wearing yes stickers plus 1 wearing a repeal t-shirt.

Sticker wearing - probably related to the 2 teams giving them out at the top and button of the road. The team on the Ballsbridge side was definitely with 50 mts of the polling station.

As a No voter - I thought nothing of this but than again I am a landlord And have a thick skin :)

Walking past another polling station - Yes side seem intent upon using up their stock pile of stickers.

To be fair - Demorarcy in action

I think everybody should abide by the rules. As I said, I removed my yes badge.

It is amusing to watch FreeFallin's constant comment with ever changing picture post to see who is the latest boogey man to scare the dissenting electorate into line. Pics of Michael D and Leo were entertaining but surely this one will not be beaten given the voting matter!

My 15 month old daughter put my ballot into the box this morning, the lady minding the ballot box was insistent that she was 'help Daddy vote'.
She played a blinder.

My constant comments!!!! 1 post with a picture which it turns out seems to be able to update as the image on the rolling feed in the IT changes.
So I made 1 more post with the hard copy of the original image I posted.

I should be sent to the stocks :roll:

Relax! Apologies if my post was badly phrased. What I meant is that the single post is fun to follow because the comment remains constant whilst the picture changes. This leads to an unintended meaning.

when the same content appears in different news outlets you can be sure there are other forces working behind the scenes

Indeed, those sinister freelance photographers who manage to capture an image that appeals to more than one digital editor. They're out to destroy society I tell you.................

Do they have to seek permission before photographing the subjects? Could be that these people in the company of children are yes voters and quite unhappy to be used in this way (not to mention being potentially photographed without having given consent in the first place).
