Labour Can Work


The ‘Here’s How’ podcast

Host William Campbell (right) meets Labour’s Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (left), former TD, ex-junior minister and currently in the seanad.

William writes:

Labour lost 30 of their 37 TDs in the 2016 election, and on current opinion poll figures they face wipe-out at local council level in 2019. I tackle Aodhán about his record in government and his party’s prospect for the future….

            I am saving them for monologue night.
            I could do a sketch for BS though : Mother Mary poked Santa and gave birth to Aodhan with a fada.

    Aodhán Ó Ríordáin did good work in establishing supervised injecting centres against the tide of political opinion.
    in fairness

      He did a good job blocking a new housing development in the grounds of St.Pauls. His middle class supporters wee delighted. Even though Aodhán hates smug, well connected, middle class people.
      Not like he’s one himself. Oh no!
      His grandstanding in the Seanad is cringeworthy. He desperately wants to go viral with each one. Americans don’t know that a Senator here means something vastly different to a Senator over there.
      He’s typical of Labour though

          Well the grounds of St. Pauls are separate from St. Anne’s park and that is constantly been fudged in the whole debacle. They were/are private grounds.
          The point being though that he is an example of yet another politician opposing new housing in a housing crisis

    Lest we forget, this is the same man who was in support of getting rid of the Seanad, until he was voted out of office…then changed his mind.

    I wonder had they just stayed out of government with FG, and continued as opposition how much they might have grown by now in terms of support.

    They’d still be inept, but might have had a better chance of holding the reigns had they waited longer.
