Labour's plans for Alan's future might be more apt.

Did I miss something? Wasn't Howlin elected leader? :roll:

He was on Miriam this morning talking opera.
As opposed to Kenny prancing around at a pop concert. You don't think he was making a point do you?

The one thing they could do immediately to raise their popularity would be to dump Kelly.

Nah, he was wallowing in his greatness.

It's a perfectly sensible analysis.

The only problems are that it's being proposed by the actually existing Alan Kelly and it's a strategy for the actually existing Labour Party, both of whom are detested in the eyes of the wider electorate.

If only had been in a position from 2011 to 2016 to implement some of his ideas......oh wait, nevermind
Yep, all of a sudden he's pretending he had a conscience all along but note that he hasn't given up on water privatisation -

We need to expand the tax base away from its over-reliance on taxes on work.

And whats wrong with 'old bangers'? at least they are fixable and provide employment to those who do. That's a clear signal that there will be no taking the insurance companies to task for exploiting the less well off members of society in a captive market. If he honestly thinks that the 'Have Nots' are all there panting for a new car then he is clearly out of his teeny weeny mind.

All in all it is a pathetic attempt at trying to regain some credibility while not letting go of his FG aspirations.

I see Alan Kelly writing in the Sindo today about his proposals for a new future for Labour.
This is what Labour must do next, according to Alan Kelly - Independent.ie

Well worth a read and, hopefully, the start of a proper debate on its future within the party.
He is sadly speaking with the idea that the Titanic has, in fact, not already hit the Iceberg.

He also litters his analysis with bland platitudes and the recurring dichotomy of "winners and losers."

The people who are losing out in our society are easy to identify - those who cannot afford to buy a modest home or those who have no home at all
This here is a personal face-palm moment.

Ultimately, Labour needs to be in government if we are to implement our policies.
Five years and that turnip presided over one of the worst increases in homelessness and rent racking since the days of the Land League. Absolute tripe.

We need to kill off the expectation that it will always be coalition with Fine Gael. It may not always be.
Although it may always and has always been. "Historians" judge the past though, right? It's their job to learn from Labour's mistakes. Alan Kelly is all about the future.

Meanwhile he blames the Constitution on his intentional failure as an Environment Minister.

"I believe in some cases we have an issue in relation to the Constitution which creates some blockages.”

I've met with people who worked under him in the Environment ministry. He is apparently a loudmouth bully who used his supposed clout to intimidate staff who disagreed with his bogus housing policy.

One of Labour's biggest mistakes was ever instating him as anything more than a busboy. Not suited to people in the slightest.

Shame he got reelected.

Utter drivel.

Two other kinds of people he forgot. Those who do and those who post drivel on the internet proclaiming their own cleverness.
