    You may lose, but if you follow Rabitte into dancing with the Blueshirts, you'll be destroyed.

    This may be all well, but the domain is under the ownership of the main party, which must suggest *some* kind of main party endorsement of this campaign.

    Oh goody! Rabitte will have a hissy fit. He might even stamp his feet.

    I'm bemused that he includes the last election campaign as a succesful one. It was a disaster for labour, they picked up no extra seats when FG couldnt give them away quickly enough. This was as a result of not ruling out possible coalition with FF after the election.
    The 1992 campaign was hugely successful- and fought on the back of a fiercely anti-FF message. I think Henry doesnt really know what he's at.

    Labour would be mad to refuse to enter into a pre-election pact with FG. It would hurt both parties, and absolutely guarantee reelection of the current partners.

    Did you see the report in the Phoenix about this? It would seem that a pact will benefit Fine Gael, and will do nothing but damage Labour.

    Besides, unless there is a minor miracle (and Enda Kenny is no messiah) the only permutation that will be viable will be FF/Labour. The only question is whether they do this with or without the Rabitte.

    Thats brilliant!!!!! how do you computer tech heads do that? im impressed.

    i sincerely doubt that the labour party would endorse this site, as the NEC decided otherwise.

    Henry knows what he is at, trust me.

    Henry |Haughton, is vice chair of labour for those who dont him. A man who doesnt mind standing up for what he believes in, unlike some politicians of ALL political parties.

    Labour will lose out on second preferences from my people if they refuse to enter into a pact with us-and they could be useful to guard off challenges from SF in certain constituencies- namely Waterford where Brian O'Shea will need FG number 2's to hold off David Cullinane, or in Galway East where Colm Keavney will be slugging it out with Paddy McHugh to be in contention for the final seat.
    Secondly, FG offer labour the best hope of being in Govt. They cant do it on their own, and are FF's third choice after PD's and independent FF's.
    If they refuse to enter the Mullingar pact, they will suffer more than FG. We are definitely going to gain seats- how many I dont know. Labour will have the same number as last time- history repeating itself like 2002, and may even drop a few seats, and be in opposition to compound that.

    Merriweather, according to their detailed internal report, the Labour party will lose out in every single constituency where they are challenging for a seat, or defending a precarious seat.

    Plus, you're not going into government. Not unless FG pick up dozens of seats. We know Labour aren't going anywhere, and the Greens may be wiped out, so it's all down to the Blueshirts.

    Not a hope.
