    Default What was the "misstatement"?

    One of the rulings was that there was a misstatement in the booklet. Anyone know what they misstated?

    It was something to do with no change with rights when in fact it was the opposite, very misleading as expected, Minister Fitzgerald on prime time showed some true bullying colours, talking over the other debater and displaying very little respect.

    One comment she made was that people were waiting 20 years for this referendum, FFS, no they weren't. They were waiting for accountability and proper services, that's all. Politicians actually believe that getting elected increases their ability or talent?

    Yeah.

    In one section of the booklet they stated that certain aspects would continue to be the case, indicating that they were already practice, whereas in fact they would be new with the passing of the referendum. I am sure the Irish Times would have an article on it.
