    from other statements you have made, I can safely say that youre a waffler. SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC AND LABOUR PARTY and the IRISH LABOUR PARTY it makes a hell of a lot of sense

    Name means bugger all.

    National Socialist Party in Germany was not exactly known for its Socialist views.

    SDLP is a middle class party which the NILF correctly called on, Irish Labour Party is not.
    Where is our Leader elected from, where is our education spokesperson elected from. we are a party about giving everyone the chance and giving those who need it, a little help along the way. The SDLP is also very much about that.

    for instance Margaret Ritchie has said that if the UDA do not put down their guns she will withdraw funding from them, yet she has said that if she must withdraw it she will put it into the working class protestant areas that it was supposed to be going into. Theres no votes for her in doing that. Thats the sort of thing that we believe in aswell
    Am I not correct in saying that Pat Rabbitte on Lets Talk openly supported the retaining of the funding for the UPRG??

    Update: Yep, my memory served me correctly; http://www.politics.ie/viewtopic.php?t=17959

    Bit of a contradiction of policy there?

    That's true actually, and is a case in point of the problems faced by the southern parties when it comes to dealing with northern issues and indeed moving north in terms of standing for election. Likewise for the provos trying to break through in the south, as we saw so dramatically recently.

    The idea that the "electoral pact" with SF for the Seanad damages our credibilty with the SDLP is ludicrous. Consider the fact that the SDLP are in government with SF in the North. Do we in the Labour party some how have to watch everything we do in case we might offend the SDLP? Consider also the SDLP snuggling up to FF in recent weeks. After years of Labour and indeed FG activists going North at election time to campaign for the SDLP I find it insulting to say the least

    There were years of FF members heading to the North to help the SDLP as well. They owe you no special duty.

    Wow anybody would think they were the only 2 parties that sent people North and that FF activists were never there.

    Never in public...

    If the SDLP do end up doing the FF thing and merging, then surely the correct response for Labour is to jump in and pick up the members that are not comfortable with said deal, which might be a higer proportion than currently anticipated once the deabates about the merits get going. I suppose the debate is should Labour wait and see or should they pre-emptively get the ball rolling?
