    He was always the most likely candidate for a No vote. He has now lost the whip. Wonder does this mean he cannot be the Chairman of the Party.
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    I would find it very difficult to believe that a TD can be a Chairman of a Parliamentary Party that he is no longer an official member of. Another nail in the coffin for Gilmore.

    @thejournal_ie: Dáil votes 87-54 to cut respite care grant as part of #Budget13 - but Labour chairman @Colm_Keaveney votes against the government.

    What's the position regarding his chairmanship of the party? He could make things very interesting if he hangs on in the position.
