Labour In Name Only.
Think maybe we can invent a new word?

I'll start:
Jimmy Harte, Donegal North East, ex Fine Gael. Son of ex Fine Gael TD. Stood as Fine Gael, then independent, now Labour.

Frank McBrearty, Donegal South West. Needs no intro.

Mae Sexton, Roscommon South Leitrim. Former PD TD.
 


S

SeamusNapoleon

Don't know anybody myself, but great thread idea.

A former PD? Well well well, this is best put out in the open coming up to the GE.

What about young spring in Kerry, his job in Anglo Irish would put him in a different pool to the traditional Labour candidate.

Nice try, but champagne socialist still has a more fitting ring to it.
You can easily envisage them quaffing it down whilst moaning about the inequity in society

Smoked Salmon Socialist we used to say.

In Germany the term is Schili - short for chic links (chic left).

But really I'm pointing out the way Labour is attempting to hoover up every rag-tag independent and ex-member of other parties, especially in areas where they were never organised before.

I like lino because it come in all sorts of shades and patterns. FG , PD or anglo irish. Of course we forget ex shinner Killian Ford. His LINO is a pale green with a tint of red.

The best part was where you undertook a comprehensive review of the policies and values of each candidate to prove that they are inconsistent with Labour's ethos.

fair enough. Lets start with McBrearty. His policies include shouting at people and well thats it.

Is shouting at people a core principle of Labour?

Arthur Spring Jr. represents all that's wrong with Irish politics. A member of a wealthy dynasty entitled to a seat.

He did mention that he would vote against Labour if it contradicted the interests of the people of Donegal. That's a policy I guess.

Well who feels he's entitled to a seat. I have a funny feeling about that though, I think he's going to get a kick in the hole down there
