Quinn heckled during speech to INTO conference - Breaking News | Irish & International Headlines | The Irish Times - Tue, Apr 02, 2013

What a difference a few years makes! It seems a different age when these morons were giving the previous minister Mary Hanafin (FF) a standing ovation and lining up to get her autograph.
Of course the media like to play it up- for instance they showed some delegates on RTE news last night who appeared to be mentally ill in an obvious move to worry hard working parents that such types could be in charge of their children.

I cannot understand why Quinn would not just tell these FF idiots to grow up or F-off.
If he did this I would guarantee Labour my vote for a decade!

It seems the Feb11 election battled the symptoms of FF and not the route cause.

Ruairi Spin, and Hanfinished were both PR stunt specialists. They deserve equal contempt.

Maybe it's just me, but is that a poor OP?

They do know it was FF policies that lead us into the arms of the Troika.

Honestly between these idiots and the ones quoted after the latest by-election I despair at this country.

It's like a heroin junkie complaining that the treatment is too much and that his dealer always treated him better.

It seems bizarre to me that the jeering just came from FF supporters.

Do you have a source for that or is it just utter utter nonsense as one strongly suspects.

Maybe it's time for a few sackings to put some manners on the teachers.

Read Tom Garvin's book 'Preventing the Future'.

And, anybody who went to school in Ireland knew FF looked after the teachers and the teachers, with few exceptions, were FF. FF always were the 'public sector party' until this crisis. That is why Labour are a minority party and FG were more private sector but Ireland always had a smaller private sector.

I'm not the greatest fan of Teachers and their previous industrial Actions
I'm also critical of the level of additional payments they get

However they have genuine grievances about the casualisation of their profession and the inability of new graduates to secure anything approaching job security , a creeping casualisation across all sectors of the economy has been happening over the last decade and the Unions seem to have missed the boat ( due to incompetence or narrow mindedness is open to discussion)

If the teaching profession becomes a casual job , then it will pass on even further and many of the rights workers have gained will be lost .... to the net loss of most of us (why pay holiday pay or sick pay when you can just use casual workers ala the docks in the early 1900s)

Not a position I usually find myself in , but on the casualisation of their profession I support them opposing it wholeheartedly
