He was always the most likely candidate for a No vote. He has now lost the whip. Wonder does this mean he cannot be the Chairman of the Party.

I would find it very difficult to believe that a TD can be a Chairman of a Parliamentary Party that he is no longer an official member of. Another nail in the coffin for Gilmore.

@thejournal_ie: Dáil votes 87-54 to cut respite care grant as part of #Budget13 - but Labour chairman @Colm_Keaveney votes against the government.

@Colm_Keaveney: Acta non verba! @labour #Budget13 #budget2013

What's the position regarding his chairmanship of the party? He could make things very interesting if he hangs on in the position.
