In my opinion NO.
There is a Labour Councillor in my town whom I admire and was definitely going to vote for her in the next local elections. However, after listening to media interviews of Eamonn Gilmore and other members of the Labour party in recent months there's not a snowballs chance in hell of me giving her a vote now.
As far as I can see the Labour party only cares for local authority tenants and the public sector workers of which I am neither.
There are 1,000's of people in Ireland to-day who are at the end of their tether due to financial pressure - are they not vulnerable?
I have two children, my advice to them will be to seek LA housing and vote Labour - then they'll be sorted for life.
