    Default Letter to The Labour Party.

    So the country is bankrupt, nigh on. So, Labour and Fine Gael were not in power when the damage was done, but neither were those of us who are now suffering for the sins of the few. But we are the targets of not just Fine Gael, but obviously, The Labour Party.

    The Labour Party that was founded for the working classes. For the weakest in society. For those who cannot provide for themselves for a variety of reasons, due to ill-health, being laid off work because of bankrupted firms, those who are now technically homeless, because they cannot pay their mortgage due to all of the above, or their homes were built by cowboys and the law will not jail those cowboys for building death-traps, nor will the law jail those who are known to be corrupt, those who continue to garner huge salaries and pensions whilst their victims live in fear and poverty, bewildered by world events they had no hand, act or part in.

    The very people The Labour Party was founded to give a voice to. Now that The Labour Party has betrayed us, who, Eamonn Gilmore, is the Traitor now?

    You and your party. You disgrace the name of James Connolly. You disgrace the name of Jim Larkin. You are the traitors. You have sold us out. To sell your soul and gain the world, maybe, but to sell your soul and gain 5 years as junior party to the most right-wing government on these isles -NO.

    Never again.

    So those that want Labour out of this right-wing government have lost a vote? You've left the party to the power hungry, just like the greens leaked members.

    Labour might respond, imagine how more right-wing the government would be without them?

    Are you seriously suggesting that Labour have half an ounce of 'left' left in them???????
    Fianna Fail - The Anti Democratic Party & The Anti Constitutional Party. Traitors of Irishmen and Irishwomen.

    I'd imagine it would be a centre right coalition of ff/FG (since the only alternative is a general election): I can't see how much more right wing it could be? Wealth is and would be protected, public services would still be cut, privitisations would still occur, public sector reform would still be baby steps.

    Or social change? Where is the legislation providing for same-sex marriage, labour have allowed that be knocked to touch and Gilmore wants a needless referendum. Legislation for X?

    I'm assuming you've sent thins to them ?

    Fair play anyway. The more that do this the sooner they'll realise what's in store for them if they don't change tack....

    . . . and another one bites the dust.

    The very people The Labour Party was founded to give a voice to. Now that The Labour Party has betrayed us, who, Eamonn Gilmore, is the Traitor now?

    You and your party. You disgrace the name of James Connolly. You disgrace the name of Jim Larkin. You are the traitors. You have sold us out.
    . . . and certainly will not be the last either. Labour will begin to resemble GP part deux, similar to how the GP were wiped. In my opinion, from listening to friends who are Labour party activists and one friend is heavily involved, there is a lot of unrest among party grass roots and support base.

    Next months budget may become that tipping point for the party. Time will tell. However, irrespective of Labours faults, imagine allowing FG loose at all the controls - Kenny would have German as a compulsory language in the national curriculum.
    We're screwed - understand the FACTS here
