I love the Irish. When they have something to say, they just come out and say it, regardless how controversial it may seem. Take the latest public information film released by Newry & Mourne District Council in Northern Ireland.
Determined to use shock tactics to illustrate the serious health risk from dog fouling, the council has released this innovative short film of a dog walker defecating outside the town hall instead of his dog. The film has been panned by the public and the media alike, but council leaders are unrepentant saying they are "very positive" at the storm it has caused and "welcome the wider debate on dog fouling it has stimulated".
Carry on Newry & Mourne District Council - we are with you all the way! :-)
