Minding manners at election time

Published 29/01/2011 | 05:00

SO Simon O'Connor (Letters, 27/01/11) will not vote for Labour in the election based solely on the fact he found Joan Burton to be bad-mannered. Is it any wonder this country is in a mess when people vote for parties based on the manners of some of their members rather than on the actual issues.

Mr O'Connor's letter gives me a feeling of dread that if the Fianna Fail candidates are nice, smiley and pleasant whilst canvassing, then there's a good chance they'll be voted back in.
