Is the sindo backing Quinn to succeed Gilmore?
It looks like it from yesterday's lead 'story'.
In an exclusive, the Sindo revealed that most Labour TDs think Reilly is a moron, at best. Hardly news, let alone a front page lead, so the story has a politcal purpose.
But wait , they also reveal that Ruairi Quinn is Reilly's most outspken minsterial opponent! This is the same Ruairi Quinn who fell over himself to praise the Bufoon Reilly when it mattered, when Roisin Shortall resigned. So the story is not about Quinn opposing Reilly, since he did all he could to save the Fat Fool when Reilly could easily have been ousted.
No , this only makes sense as a blatant leak by Quinn himself to curry favour with the unwashed ahead of a leadership battle. The fact that the Sindo gave a front page to this PR exercise means he is the Sindo's favoured son to be Labour leader. That should be enough to convince any Labour party member to run a mile from any attempt to impose Quinn on the party.
Remember comrades, the Golden Rule, any Labour minister who is praised or helped by the Sindo is in bed with the devil.
