I phoned the environment section of Cork City Council today to inquire what action had been taken against those who had illegally erected election posters all over the city prior to the election.
At the time I was informed that although the city’s litter wardens had not spotted any illegal posters they would keep a sharp look out for any breach of the law and appropriate action would follow.
No, I was informed today, not a single illegal poster was spotted by the ever watchful litter wardens.
Ah well, at least my amazing gift for predicting future events with 100% accuracy is still intact.
In my pre election call I informed the official that no action whatsoever would be taken as a result of the illegal posters and so it has come to pass.
