    Default Labour support FG pact by a crushing majority

    anti-pact dissidents overwhelmingly beaten in Tralee - 80% support for Rabbitte's position.

    Will the whingers now unite behind Rabbite ?

    I was surprised by the margin of victory. I want an alternative coalition put forward, but I wanted it to be by a very narrow majority, which would have contrasted nicely with the Green unity two weeks ago and thus give them an edge.
    BTW, has the FG Ard Fheis been on yet, or when is it due? I wonder will Pat go!

    The margin of victory has to be a surprise-

    Given all the hype over the issue, the result has to mean that there is massive anti-FF sentiment among Labour's grassroots; and that ordinary members were suspicious of the motives of Howlin, mcdowell haughton and the rest (ie. that they secretly want coalition with FF)

    Anyone agree ?

    It's good to see. It dramatically improves the chances of a different government next time around and I think it will help both parties. It also shows us that Labour Youth and people like Howlin do not represent the views of the majority of the people in the Labour party.
