    This Form is moribund... just like the Labour party

    So many issues and opportunities to champion - homelessness, housing, privatisation, health waiting lists, social welfare etc - but not a peep out of them.

    Why would any serious Labour party activist subject themselves to the pointless personal abuse that passes for debate on P.ie?

    There's no U in the Irish Labour Party. There's just Me and my Cronies.

    Withdrawal symptoms.

    Since the Labour party got wiped out and are no longer in Government, certain posters miss them and are trying to flog a dead horse, so to speak

    They are nostalgic for the good old days of screaming abuse at "scum Liebour", etc

    Meh, they're irrelevant in modern Ireland in any case.

    Labour have seriously lost their way, far from being larkinites and leftists they've become scabs and leeches. They have a rather bleak future unless they have some sort of internal revolution in their ranks and produce a Corbyn-type leader. It's sad really, a party with some of the greatest Irishmen as founders like Connolly and Larkin and all they can do is serve as FG's mudguard.
