I see on Labour's website, there is a press release to say that Eamon has made Labour's 10,000th press release since 2006.
I wonder will they have a press release now to say that they've made 10,001 press releases?
Labour are policy lite, we all know that, but just how lite are they.
We've seen Eamon's posturing on critical items like the Croke Park deal and now on metro North, "I'd push it back, but only a bit, not a big bit, not a small bit, maybe leave it the same, tell me what you want and I'll say it."
I had another poster tell me that labour have detailed policy documents and held up their tourism policy as a fine example, and indeed a hefty 37 page document. I had a quick glance and wanted to see their policy on the current air travel tax that they opposed on introduction. And what's there?
The Labour party calls for the immediate abolition or the significant reduction of the air travel tax.
So, cut the tax from 10 Euro to somewhere between 0 Euro and 9 Euro. Even with a detailed document, on a no brainer issue like abolishing the departure tax, Labour still manage to sit on the fence.
So tell me, who has the job in the labour party of pulling the splinters out of Eamon Gilmore's arse?
