“Politics and politicians must lead by example and must lead the change. We deserve better and we have a right as a people to be angry with the circumstances we face in this country today.”
A pre-election Colm Keaveney TD, Labour Party Chariman.
The Irish Daily Mail this morning (not available online) reports that Mr Keaveney has hired his wife Deirdre as his parliamentary assistant (52k per annum) against Labour Party guidelines and without advertising the job.
Conspiracy theorists may question the story’s timing given Keaveney’s remarks about a snap election earlier this month.
