5th Class Elections
5th class have been learning about the election and some phrases to do with #GE16. Four election parties were created which then reduced down to two just before the vote. There was a lot of pressure due to the intense campaign. Remaining in the race were CL from Fianna Fáil “Rise and follow Charlie” and EG from the Fine Gael Gael party. Both parties had sophisticated campaign teams and an army of spin doctors around them throughout the campaign.
The leaders Q&A session with both candidates was a tough affair as both their manifestos were rigorously dissected. “I had some jokes about getting rid of water charges and that karate is just for boys but the voters took what I said very seriously” CL. EG seems to have stuck literally to her manifesto, resulting in a smoother performance.
As we go to print, a number of voters have still not cast their ballots. We will #SGE16 updates on Twitter as soon as we have white smoke. In conversation with CL and KC from 5th class.
