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.
