    What is there to be said about the Labour party now? What percentage are they at in the opinion polls? Single digits anyway. They should be making hay but I’d say if you asked most people in the street they’d struggle to name the party leader.
    The party itself just doesn’t seem that bottomed to do anything about their current position either.

      Maybe they should reach out to their colleagues in the British Labour Party for advice and support on how to run a stable, effective, united party.

    Labour turned their back entirely on the people who put them in power last time around while shifting to the right. Also, Alan Kelly.
    They can disappear off the face of the earth as far as I’m concerned.

    Isn’t this just business as usual for SF? Don’t they criticize any party in power on any issue? I’m sure Simon Harris isn’t going to any lose sleep. SF moaning about a children’s hospital ?, Ha! they used to blow up children and still carry the coffins of the men who did it.

      Simon Harris loses sleep over nothing, not even the women who have died as a result of his incompetence. that’s the issue pat.

        My point is that crabby face there with her typical faux outrage doesn’t lose sleep over women and children dying as long as it help “the cause”. SF are disingenuous in everything that they do. And labour? as non -entity as they are, shame of them for aligning themselves with the ‘ra for cheap morality points.
