ELECTION 2020 campaigning is well and truly underway and like a large portion of the public you may be struggling to keep track of all the upstanding members of the public putting themselves forward, vying for your vote.
Not sure if your vote should go to the man on the poster on the lamp post who is inexplicably hugging a lamb and has a slogan “Foreigners? I’m Not Sure!”, the woman with a picture of a doctor vaccinating a child under the header “stop the murdering autism terrorist mind controllers” or the more sinister person with the words ‘Fine Gael’ on their poster.
WWN is at the vanguard of political and scientific innovation and with a series of questions listed below we can pair you with the local candidate who would serve you well, according to your specific beliefs, priorities and ideology*:

Mostly As – We’ve paired you Fianna Gael’s candidate Leona McCormick O’Dowd. She believes in people paying their fair share in Irish society when it comes to paying for her expenses and helping her edge one step closer to the gravy train of the Dáil or the Seanad.
Mostly Bs – We’ve paired you Fianna Gael’s candidate Sean O’Dowd because there is no escape from this endless nightmare. No matter how hard you try, no matter what friend or family member you plead with to vote Social Democrats, Sinn Féin, Green Party or the Irish Dole Party, you will not stop them. Sean, married to Leona, cares deeply about caring deeply about looking like he cares about thing if it helps him advance himself into an elected position that pays well.
*Don’t forget if you registered to vote in the last year you haven’t actually been added to the updated register in time for the 8th of February election date. What a convenient coincidence for the government, something we’re sure they were completely unaware of. Find out how to register to vote HERE.
