Well they are at it again. Playing the populism card and trying to appeal to as many people as possible without coming down on one side or the other.
Gilmore says Metro North should be put on hold. Others in the front bench say it should go ahead. And everyone else is left confused and wondering which is it.
Of course Gilomore has form on this. He was for the Croke Park agreement and against it.
They have no policy on the bank guarantee other than to oppose it completely, a very populist measure no doubt, but since they were not in government it is easy to be opportunist about it and oppose the guarantee. Had the government not put in place the guanantee, the country would have collapsed and the IMF called in.
Is it any wonder no-one knows what Labour stand for when they are in favour and oppose most things.
Populism without policies in a time of recession, not what the country needs.
