    Default Childers resigns from Parliamentary Labour Party

    Nessa Childers resigns from the Parliamentary Labour Party - joining Labour members in opposition » Latest News » Nessa Childers MEP - a strong voice for Leinster


    “The party leadership’s strategy of attacking people who are loyal to the party’s stated policies; coupled with their objection to a special party conference and objection to renegotiating the Programme for Government signals that they is completely cut off from the concerns of the party members and Labour party ideals and values.

    What difference does this make to anything?

    Not too surprised about this. She's been making noises for some time now.

    I wonder will anyone else follow

    What is that now, six in the gang now. Before long they'll be in double digits. They could think about a break away nua Labour party.

    Good move, to have ANY chance of re-election she needs to avoid the yoke of the Labour Party logo against her name.

    Has been coming with ages. She joins TDs Patrick Nulty, Colm Keaveney, Róisin Shortall and Tommy Broughan on the outside looking in. I think at this stage it's a case of who's next? John Whelan perhaps?

    Could we be heading back to a repeat of the late 1940's and see the formation of the "National Labour Party"?
