Anyone know who is behind this campaign? It just seems like a load of Fianna Fail bashing.

but apparently the person behind it only communicates via email. It doesnt sound as if it comes from FG/LP. The piece below comes from the site, I cant imagine them advising people to take a day off work.

Taxpayers are the employers of the politicians, as with any job, the employers review their employees performance. Click here to fill in Bertie's review, which will be email directly to him.

Send Bertie a t-bag, last week he reckon he was annoyed that other leaders have to pay for a cup of tea, so lets give him some.

Reward yourself for all your hard work, by taking 7th December off.

The Gardai got away with it when they had the blue-flu day, so why can't you?

Go and do your Christmas shopping.

If you are afraid to take the day off, then wear all black into work in solidarity with the people who stand up for themselves.

Oh we used in the old days to have the holy shopping day on the 8th of december when we came up
to the big smoke to get the xmas giftf- reclaim culchie day!
Make it the seventh to remove the religious conntations!

This is meant as a serious challenge to this Banana Republic Govt, no point in shifting your shopping to another day. Come on both days!

But you are wrong Dorothy Gale- I think the day should be creative, go to the galleries and pubs
and have a bit of fun with mates, its boring standing on the streets, bring a camera-do it in drag
and don't forget the garters (which Bertie does aspire to)

Oh we control you all right. By subtle means...

Come up, come out and dress up!

Why not dress as Paddy The Plasterer or Peter The Painter who did Ivor Callely s gaff?

Dress as Marie Antionette and bring Bertie some free cake to go with his tea.
