Yes folks, when we're crippled with a housing crisis and record rents stripping our disposable incomes.
When we will have to adjust to the unknown affects of Brexit & Trump.
The EU in a shaky position with the Italian vote & Le Pen with an eye on Le French presidency.
When we're screwed on taxes with little to show for it.
When company pensions are underwater & state pensions not far behind.
With record levels of National Debt.

Labour hits the nail on the head.
It's the one issue everyone has been taking about.
What would we do without them.

It's no wonder Labour are doing so well in the polls.
The party with it's finger on the pulse.

I think they are right. That being said I am sure the gay people were delighted in jail. They probably got more ass in there than they could ever get in civilian life.

Absolutely no time for Labour.

However, I don't object to this proposal. It's a good one. It's also being used to deflect from any role they played in creating the current housing crisis.

Do you know what ?
I don't object either.
But there's a time and a place and this is neither.
It just makes them monumentally out of touch and looking like they are devoid of ideas.

Why set up this thread if your opinion, it's irrelevant?

I suppose the gay marriage referendum victory was their only success during their disastrous failed stint in Government and they see votes in pursuing this issue.

Mainstream Socialism became social democracy in the late 80s , it caved in to big businesss, the EU project and 'the markets' and has spent the last 30 years navel gazing on social issues because economically they are just the same as the Tories/FG ( our own Labour Party also became a pressure group for the PS at the expense of all other workers)

This is just more of the same because they really haven't got the message yet ....not surprising given the tired old leadership of the Irish Labour Party , it's beyond redemption at this stage ......we are watching an extinction

Typical two sides of mouth ranting,unwilling to admit you oppose the proposal.
I've heard it for generations now, as if concerns about homelessness, health, education, brexit, etc., were pushed to one side because of this right being wronged.
Same approach was used by right wingers in respect of laws about contraception, divorce, marriage equality, adoption and more. Not fooling anybody.

While I have no time for the labour party, it is of course possible, indeed it is essential, for any political party to have a position on a wide variety of issues, and not just the most critical ones of the day.

It is disgraceful that this site permits you to title the thread as you have. That term is just so ugly.

Such an apology would prevent all of those other things happening?

All those other important things and you start a thread on this, rather than on them?

And, homos?

As bad as they were treated times were very different and im afraid this will open a big can of worms, anyone could claim to be gay and say they were badly treated and claim compensation, this compo culture does no one any good, what about all the women who suffered in the magdalene laundaries or all the children taken from their mothers and adopted to other families because they were born out of wedlock, yes times were bad but we cant change what happened in the past no amount of apoligies can change that we just have to move on and think of the future.

Gays are allegedly up to 10% of the population.
maybe it's a gambit by Labour to raise their dismal popularity figures
from 0.0001% right up to the 10% mark, without actually having to be
a credible political party? :p
