“They knew very well that they were destroying the Labour Party and with it the honourable social democratic tradition it represented. They decided to do it anyway.”

“…It has taken just three years for Sinn Féin to turn the logic of what Labour did in 2011 into stark electoral numbers. They are quite staggering: in 2011, Labour’s vote was twice Sinn Féin’s. In 2014, Sinn Féin’s was nearly three times Labour’s…”

Brain Hacker Keith [Barry] says he was refused his scheduled interview with new signing Neil Prendeville because he had just appeared on rival station Cork’s 96FM chatting with PJ. Keith got told, whilst waiting in reception that “Neil doesn’t want to interview him”. He says he thought it was a wind-up at first, and said the producer seemed ‘quite dumbfounded’ when delivering the news.
