    It’s between O’Riordan and Kelly. Labour being Labour they will elect O’Riordan and you can expect manifestos based on identity politics for the foreseeable future along with pleas to increase funding for Universities and the Arts.
    They certainly don’t represent the working class or low paid.
    Completely out of touch.

    Brendan: Lads? Leo? Micháel? Lads?

    It will take more than a change of leader to save Labour from the political wilderness. They need new blood who are actual socialists with a civic conscience, not just suits who are in it for themselves which is what the current crop of Labour TDs are.

    Howlin baled out Fine Gael, the Country is more in debt now than 10 years
    ago, he also stood over property and water tax, his party is gone and so is
    he, and if he had any principles he’d have gone ages ago, and the crowd
    around him hadn’t the guts to fire him…..incidentally where has Jack O’Connor

      It says a lot about Brendan’s so called ‘reforms’ that the country is more indebted now than it was ten years ago. He protected the pockets of civil servants and those same civil servants didn’t even bother voting Labour.
      As you say it doesn’t say much for the rest of them in the party that stood around and watched as the party faded in to insignificance.
      Brendan is now another former schoolteacher who is now a multi-millionaire along with his socialist colleague Michael D Higgins
