    Default The Labour Party in DublinWest!!!! Is there an internal war going on?

    Looking at Joan's team below, I see TD's, Councillors etc, but there is no mention of Patrick Nulty!

    I knew he was out of the Parliamentary party, but is he leaving the party or is Nulty playing fast and loose?

    Your Local Labour Team | Joan Burton - TD for Dublin West in Dail Eireann



    Searching the Twitter machine, I have also found the image below from a local booklet, but according to this, the Labour party doesn't exist at all. Is there anyone in Labour that would care to explain what both sides are at in DublinWest?

    Looks as if FFitis is catching with small and non-existent Party affiliations on material to become the norm.

    I would say that after to-day, the Labour party will never see power again, unless they stick their fingers in a socket........

    Of course Nulty is not mentioned by Burton. He's out of the party at the moment.

    He'll be back in either shortly before or shortly after the next General Election.

    The OP should get to know how this stuff works.

    By the way: one exclamation mark is always enough.

    Agreed. I reckon Sinn Fein, if it plays its cards right, is going to take a good chunk of their votes out from under them by stepping into the centrist shoes Labour usually fills.

    There is only one Labour seat maximum in this constituency next time around. They both know that.

    Nulty used the Labour party banner to get elected in the first place.

    He is as Independent as Ming and Wallace.

    Indeed, he was happy to milk the Labour party dry to get elected. If he ran as Independent Coppinger or McGuinness would have taken the seat.

    I don't think I've seen a sadder face on a political pamphlet since James Molyneaux last stood for office.

    Eh, Nulty was thrown out of Labour over a year ago. Where have you been?
