When an important motion proposed by Ind Cllr Damien Farrell concerning Taxi deregulation in the city only 3 out of 20 Lab councillors were present now I know 2 out of 3 aint bad but 3 out of 20 is showing contempt for the people who elected them.

Labour...Bunch of turncoat,sell out,champagne socialists...When an important motion proposed by Ind Cllr Damien Farrell concerning Taxi deregulation in the city only 3 out of 20 Lab councillors were present now I know 2 out of 3 aint bad but 3 out of 20 is showing contempt for the people who elected them.
Redhead - unfortunately you are correct.Local authorities have no function in deregulating taxis.
Pretty much as I figured, lots of motions which have nothing to do with the council but let someone claim the council supporting something or other.Redhead - unfortunately you are correct.
I was present to the end of the meeting and the Labour Councillors did vote in support of same. While the sentiments of the motion were important and worthy of support it was also a motion outside our area of authority so its importance in that sense should not be overstated.
The truth is that the motions segment of DCC meetings is the least important in terms of our actual powers and responsibilities and for that reason many Councillors do leave before they are dealt with.
In truth we usually only reach two or three of these each meeting and the remaining three hours is devoted to the standard business of the Council. Last night was an exception in that there was not as much normal business for a variety of reasons.And the councillors themselves can't change this, to cut out this sort of rubbish?
While I agree that the motion was not of huge significance to the Labour Party I am sure if FF cllrs had "legged it" before the end of the meeting Labour supporters on here would have been claiming that FF councillors were only turning up for expenses and leaving as soon as possible.Next up , councillor fails to bless himself as he passed the Pro - Cathedral.
I think Labour people have more substantial grounds for criticising Fianna Fail than that.While I agree that the motion was not of huge significance to the Labour Party I am sure if FF cllrs had "legged it" before the end of the meeting Labour supporters on here would have been claiming that FF councillors were only turning up for expenses and leaving as soon as possible.
RB was reported as referring to KH as a clown but I think he later apologised.Wasn't one of those Labour Councillors called a "clown" a few years back. Who was that again?
I remember at the time thinking, God yes, that guy is a clown. He sounded so pathetic and lame. Put me off ever voting for Labour. This stuff is just typical of Labour. Juketeers.
How is it unfair? Was the wording of the motion with regard to something that could actually be done for those working in the taxi trade, or was it more of the usual pandering that let's people who need assistance think someone is speaking up for them when in fact they aren't able to do anything other than blow smoke up their rears? That is what Ivor did for years.I have had my disagreements with Damian but I do think that last post is unfair. There is now a real problem for the Industry, the congested traffic situation and over time for the customer if the present chaos is not sorted out.
