Anyone watching Brendan Howlin's speech. I really didn't know that Labour did all those things. He's talking about multi-millionaires now and seems to be targeting the remaining Labour party TDs. :)

This is funny. They cut away from Howlin and show Bacik to remind people of Labour's electoral success. Guess the camera crew aren't Labour supporters. :)

Labour is going to stop Climate Change. :) Where the **** do these clowns get their speech writers?

akin to a dying wasp without a s sting.
if he thinks playing up multiculturalism at the expense of the nation state then his party is doomed and will be lucky to return 4 tds.......perish the thought, team Healy Rae could have as many seats after election 2020.

he wants to turn Ireland into that Nirvana that is Sweden, does he not accept that his brand of multiculturalism is destroying that once proud nation.

He had the usual cheap shot at Peter Casey.....Casey has his limitations, but as a pure independent with no party support he received 56,650 first prefs in the North West/Midlands Euro elections in 2019......The Labour candidate received 12,378.........whose message resonated best?.

If Labour end up with between 1 and 3 seats after election 2020, can we then take it they are an irrelevance and would no longer be entitled to a live tv leaders speech at future party conferences?

At this stage, a Healy-Rae party would have more supporters and it would upset the Dublin media. :)

The collective age on that stage would probably put the dinosaurs to shame.

I do not understand why people give out to the oldest political party in the state.

They did not bankrupt the country but were blamed for the consequences.

At the same time those that were cheer led into government for five elections in a row and ended up bankrupting the country are again being cheer led back into government at the next election.

That's Labour's problem, they just don't understand why we can't clearly appreciate our betters and why life is so unfair. That outlook has never worked for Labour before now, it's not going to start any time soon. Labour need to get with it and actually engage with real working people who aren't lucky to have unions as opposed to just fluffing Jack O'Connors manhood endlessly.

A bankrupt country did not serve the real working people too well.

I absolutely agree, but that's how it goes. FF are probably more mediocre than they've ever been, but that's their problem, and it's for Labour to fix their own issues as opposed to opining how very unfair it all is from what is a very comfortable and privileged position in Irish society.

So a bunch of snouters kicked out at the last GE want to get their snouts back in the public trough? :) This time they are going to look after "people".

The truth is though that one group have had their snouts in the trough with the approval of the Irish media for nearly 70% of the time since independence.

They are being cheer led back to the trough by the Irish media now.

Those presstitutes will do anything that they are told, wouldn't they? Do you think that they will promote these Labour types as the saviours of humanity and the Irish people while homelessness increased during the reign of Labour ministers for housing?

Wrong.
One group has had its snout in the trough for 100% of the time since independence - FFG, sometimes backed up by Lab.

The reason why Labour is now seen as an irrelevance is because they always backed the other snouters, usually the more rightwing branch.
They did it once too often, and have been left out in the cold. Good riddance.

The problems in housing, health and homelessness were caused by the bankrupting of the country by those at the trough for more than a decade in the pre-2009 period.

They were those at the trough for 70% of the time since independence.

That was not the labour party.

There were two groupings. One was in power nearly 70% of the time since independence.

Labour backed both on occasion but was not needed for most of the 70% of the time since that group had an overall majority.

But labour did not bankrupt the country.

The group that was in power the longest did.

Power corrupts.

Pay rises for politicians in the midst of Austerity for the people?

What kind of a "politician" thinks that opening a food bank is a photo-op?
Both politicians and public servants had their salaries cut as a result of the country being bankrupted by a small number of its own most powerful citizens in pre-2009 period.
The food banks became necessary because the country was bankrupted.
Labour did not bankrupt the country.
They dealt with the consequences and got the blame by the media.
