WITH the Seanad referendum less than a month away, Fine Gael have taken a new tack in promoting a ‘Yes’ vote.

The  party sent out less-than-appealing looking green iced cupcakes to media outlets in the hope of promoting the ‘Yes’ campaign.

The colour scheme has drawn comparisons to the wicked witch of the West’s face in the Wizard of Oz.

The cupcakes feature the words ‘Vote’ and ‘Yes’ on them, as well as little ticked boxes.

Although the ‘Yes’ side enjoyed an early lead in polls on Seanad abolition, the gap with the ‘No’ side has been narrowing in recent weeks.

Posters promoting a ‘Yes’ vote have been appearing around the country, with Fianna Fail spearheading the ‘No’ campaign.

The referendum on Seanad abolition will take place on October 4th.
