But why do we need these photos? 10000 would sure buy a nice few books for those libraries!!1.The Socialist Party are quite clearly being singled out here. Fianna Fail(4),Fine Gael(6) and Labour(9) have more council seats than the Socialist Parties 3 seats but they are not mentioned.
2.The article implies that it was Newbridge House was rented out at huge cost to the taxpayer. The "mansion" that the pictures were taken in is owned by the state so it was of no cost to the taxpayer.
3.Socialist Party is Trotskyist meaning that is fully opposed to East Germany and any other Totalitarian Socialist States.
4.The Socialist Party councillors all take the average wage of a skilled worker so they make the least of all the councillors in that room and to paint them as champagne socialists is simply unfair.
Fair enough if you want to attack the SP's legitimate views and feel free to give them abuse if one of their councillers is found to be corrupt or taking liberties but that clearly isnt the case.Kelly and some of the people here are biased and don't seem to be aware of these facts.
