Who's bull$hitting who? Jan O'Sullivan or AK47?

According to Alan Kelly, Jan O'Sullivan wanted a leadership contest in Labour. But she wouldn't nominate him to have a contest.

Jan O'Sullivan predicts no party fall out in Limerick over Alan Kelly - News - Limerick Leader

Seems her stance has seriously pi$$ed off her remaining supporters in Limerick. Both Councillor Joe Ninety and this Joe Kemmy guy are spitting bricks that the party membership was denied its say in the election.

A number of supposedly Labour locals are also putting around the story that, if Jan had seconded AK47's nomination, Howlin would have stood aside and Kelly would have got the job. Jeez, some sense of entitlement!

But I suppose it's understandable when you dump your traditional supporters and replace them with the right-on yummies from Limerick's posher suburbs. Jan really has pi$$ed on the people who worked their balls off to get her elected.

You're beginning to remind me of patslatt and D4; obsession is unhealthy.

Standards, dear boy, standards.....petunia

On the topic itself, Alan Kelly has no friends in the parliamentary labour party and a massive sense of entitlement.

Didn't we know this already?

Looks like all the Labour 60year old + are getting a spin at the leadership role, maybe its Jans turn next. Leadership of a Party can derive significant advantages and Labours Careerists are all about the spoils.

The Labour Party doesn't know what it stands for any more. Is it Left or Centre, Working-Class or Middle-Class, motivated by ideology or practicality?

We've just come through one of the bleakest periods in the history of this State, with Labour as 2IC - evictions rocketing, people struggling to meet basic needs, our healthcare in a mess - and what, according to themselves, is their greatest achievement? - fkn same-sex marriage! What a bunch of bozos!

The problem they now have is that we all know what Howlin stands for... and its's not what the Labour supporters think they stand for.

It's reached obsession status by now.
Can't remember any bother when Eamon Gilmore became party leader by the same method.
Maybe Labour should establish an army council and allow them to pick the leader.

Don't mention the army council and their continued criminality.

Parliamentary partys should decide the leader.

You have part leadership ambitions, but you can't get anyone to second your nomination.

There's a message there Alan old boy.

"LABOUR TD Jan O’Sullivan does not believe there are going to be "any major problems at all” in the local party as the fallout over the lack of a leadership contest continues.

And she said she believes Alan Kelly’s “time will come”, citing his “relative inexperience” as to why he failed to secure a seconder in his leadership bid.

But the move – which saw Brendan Howlin become Labour leader by default – has caused recriminations in the local Labour party, as many believed it would be Ms O’Sullivan who would second his nomination, and potentially trigger a contest."
Jeez, I don't know about Jan's protestations of it all being sweetness and light here in Limerick. I saw two pensioners clubbing each other with their Zimmer frames in a Corbally garden centre. I assumed they were Labour Party supporters.

Well obviously.
The alternative, the appalling vista, is not to be contemplated.

+ statistically, the odds of 6 Labour TD's being wrong on any one issue are actually quite high, so he has God and the Labour record on his side.
