They must decide.

Labour’s Alan Kelly tweetz:

“I am delighted to announce that I have been nominated to stand for leader of Labour. A huge thank you to all those who have supported me and especially the people of Tipperary for giving me their confidence once again as, without them, I wouldn’t be in a position to be here today.”

    “‘Day of apologising is over’ for Labour, says Alan Kelly”. I wasn’t aware the apologising had ever begun.

    Alan ‘water meters’ Kelly- a project that couldn’t even pay for itself let alone contribute to the upgrade of the infrastructure- they really are clueless.

    AK played an absolute blinder in the Dáil during Oct Nov of 2017 on behalf of Maurice McCabe, and was instrumental in opening up the Tess/ Noirin/ Frances email group – right there on his feet – on his own
    And tearing the then Minister for Justice asunder – day after day
    More than anyone else in the Dáil
    And I’m sure Mary Lou – who wasn’t behind the door herself, would even agree

    That Aodhan rhymes with crayon is a typical Labour appeaser, and holds no conviction about anything. Not even his own name.

    But at least we’re to be spared Ged. So that’s something.
