Why is there a photo of Angela Merkel on Labour Party leaflets?

A tale from the Labour Party campaign trail that borders on the urban myth.

In a Dublin suburb, an angry voter berated a party canvasser: "Why is there a photo of Angela Merkel on your leaflet?"

The punter on the doorstep is told by the sheepish Labour activist: "That's not Angela Merkel. It's Emer Costello, our MEP in Dublin".

Given she looks nothing like Angela Merkel, presumably Emer needs to do some more profile building with her constituents.
