    Default Something Labour does believe in - Keeping McDonald's out of posh areas

    There are wigs on the Green at the moment over a proposal to introduce a 'flagship' drive-thru McDonalds in one of Ireland's finest and most dignified locales, Sandymount.

    According to the Irish Times, there have been a number of objections from locals, including that:

    Several objectors said the proposed restaurant would “substantially alter the settled, peaceful and residential nature of this older part of Dublin”. They also criticised the lack of consultation with local residents.
    The revolting residents are being supported in their crusade for old decency by Labour councillor Kevin Humphries, who complained:

    “This is already an extremely congested junction. The proposed location is close to the Aviva Stadium, the O2 and Irishtown Stadium and if this McDonald’s drive-thru was allowed, there would be compete gridlock. The traffic implications alone would make this development unacceptable.”

    However, in addition to the traffic problems, there were real concerns for the health of children in the area, Mr Humphreys said. The site backs on to St Mathew’s primary school and is also close to the Star of the Sea primary school.
    Is it Labour policy to object to proposed McDonald's restaurants throughout the State? Or are they ok with the lumpen proles stuffing their fat faces with Big Macs so long as the quality don't have to be subjecting to seeing them?

    Mc Donalds (Mc Sh*t) should be resisted by everybody for so many reasons not just the fact they feed our kids crap.

    I think the two on O'Connell St. should be shut also, Mc. Donalds has no place in a modern Ireland so they should be kept out of everywhere.

    I live in an area you mentioned and I wouldn't say it is posh, just free of knackers. Mostly normal middle class people.

    I've never been more likely to vote Labour than today.
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    It's important that politicians make our healthy eating decisions for us. Sure you can't trust people to do that themselves.

    The human right to earn a livelihood being confined by Sinn Fein to what they actually approve of, I see.
    "......... we must sometimes listen to those who, consumed with zeal, have scant judgment or balance. To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."
