Colm Keaveney has voted against the govt on the withdrawal of the respite grants. Will this see a split or will he just join Roisin et al and be heard of no more?

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

No but as is the P.ie tradition that won't the stop the tide of endless hyperbolic posts predicting doomsday scenarios all round. Conveniently in about a week or ten days from now, all these predictions will have been conveniently forgotten about and instead we'll be subjected to endless hyperbolic doomsday posts in relation to some other issue.

If Gilmore really stood for what he wants people to think he stands for, then he would have resigned a long long time ago.

NT - we have two threads on the go. Can you decide which we should use or we'll be all over the shop - which might suit certain interests:D

That thread has already been addressed before you get your knickers in a twist any further!

Fair play to Colm. As for the rest of the ovine invertebrates . . .

You mean like the iminent collapse of the euro? (happening this week my sources tell me. Honest.) Or Greece's euro exit which has happened about a dozen times? Or the guaranteed victory for that Mormon chap - can't remember his name....

Thank you Paddy - my remark about is suiting certain interests seemed to bring on a dose of bad conscience in you.

In contrast to you who as a FFer doesn't actually have any conscience worth speaking off! :lol:

Isn't it customary to keep the earlier thread in such cases? The other thread beat this one by 2 minutes.

Anyhow:

Quit your trolling now Paddy, we have serious business to discuss. You realise, I presume, that this is the beginning of the end.
Anyway, I was asking on the other thread where this left his position as party chairman. Anyone know?

Yes I posted the original thread at 2:09pm and this thread wasn't posted until 2:11pm, so why was the original thread closed?

At least one of them finds his conscience.

Pretty much but you get this kind of overkill on most P.ie threads these days! Let's just call it the 'Sky Sports News Effect'!
