    Default Roisin shortall

    I always wonder why is she in the labour party, she is very right wing, she would suit FG.

    Why do you say this?
    I would always have said that Roisin was more to the left of the party.

    Are you high? She's an irredeemable leftie who thinks the State should give everything to everybody and the 'rich' should pay for it. She's a subscriber to Toothfairy politics coupled with Robin Hood economics.

    Yes LeDroit my opinion exactly. Which sort of concerns me too. It shows you how far to the left the Labour party has gone under Gilmore and Burton when Shorthall is considered right-wing.

    Shortall fits in well with Labour.

    Now Joanna Tuffy - there is a woman who seems to be in the wrong party.

Then the labour party are not a real left wing party, back at the 07 election their policies were almost the same as the pds, of course now they talk populist ************************************************ about high taxes on rich and thats why they are so high in the polls, remember the people of ireland put bertie ahern and FF in power for the last 3 terms.
