    Cool socialist party to contest limerick city

    The sociaist party has announced that they are running a candidate in limerick city.Dont suppose it will make much difference to the outcome but it is good to see the SP get involved in electoral politics in limerick.If nothing else it will show them that winning a dail seat is not as easy as it seem,i wish Cian luck,he will need it but as he is only 21 hes got time on his side.

    Great to see the Socialist Party spreading it's wings,hopefully all 44 constituencies will have Left candidates also.The ordinary people must have the opportunity to vote for an alternative to the cosy middle of the road neocon consensus that passes for politics in this country.

    Excellent news, gives people more choice and further splits the left vote.
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    If people have any sense they will vote for him and any other extremist they can find. We have nothing to gain but pain if we vote for the European Commissions slate of candidates FF, FG Lab. We need to vote for people who will force them to buy us off or kick us out. Either would do.

    If he hurts anyone I'd say it would be Labour, the SP have no base in working class Limerick, They guys name in Cian Prendivelle,

    Fair Play to them.

    I will vote for absolutely anybody but FF at this stage.

    Well nearly anybody (forgot about Clr Kiely seeking election )

    He's a UL student. Like the last candidate they ran.

    I'd be surprised if he got above 500 votes.

    I would not get my hopes up Keith,it looks to me that that there will be a large number of votes to be collected by whoever is top of the "left" pile.Greens SP independents are all going to transfer to SF and Lab, Power and ODonnell to get very little.If Power is next to go his vote will do little to help ODonnell,im hoping Leddin will by then be ahead of Quinlivan and on Quinlivans elimination Leddin gets the last seat,bring it on.
