Niamh Connolly of the Sunday Business Post has just tweeted that she is hearing that Eamon Gilmore at today's meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party stated his intention to strip rebel TDs and Senators of their party membership and not just their membership of the parliamentary party.

This could be quite serious and if carried through could cause a serious split in Labour.

Will Ruairí Quinn then approach Gilmore telling him he's come for a head?

Gimmemore is on an authority trip.

Clearly, he will not tolerate individuals expressing their conscience from stopping him from being in power.

The Stickie leadership of the ILP are behaving increasingly like the CJH faction running FF in the 1980s, with every passing day.

It has now got to the point that PSF are more tolerant of dissenting voices than OSF.

Currently FFinished are more likely to allow internal debate than the Looper Party.

While I`m aware that the labour leader has a lot of clout ( not enough in his eyes ), I rather think it would have to go to some sort of hearing if that was indeed the case.

If Kenny can hold the fort with his crowd then only around 8/9 Labour TDs are required fr a majority.

The 8/9 old stickies like Gilmore have no problem voting through every cut so I don't see what the problem is.

Democracy, where for art thou democracy?
Do you believe that if you join an organisation, you should obey the rules of an organisation?

If an individual TD in Labour made a speech that denied the Holocaust, and then went on to say that he hoped there would be a series of pogroms against Irish Jews in the near future, and was thrown out of Labour, would you decry the anti-democratic nature of it all?

But Colm & James are voting FOR LP policy. A few with backbones in a party of invertebrates.

Yes, as long as those rules chime with my principles.

Go easy on the hyperbole there.....are you really that desperate to be in government with a bunch of comrades from the former OSF ?
