It looks like Limerick Labour are hitting the panic button as they continue to disintegrate.
Last week, according to the Limerick Leader...
Limerick Labour stalwart criticises party
"ONE of the most influential figures in the Labour Party locally has criticised its record in government – and says the pay of senior party figures is “scandalous” in this economic climate."
In the article "Former Labour chairman, election director and PRO Joe Kemmy has said he is disappointed the party has not done more to reduce the pay of senior ministers." and he doesn't hold out hope for any salvation for Limerick when he says "Labour has lost much of its core support since coming to government – and Mr Kemmy admits he is not sure the “slide” in support can be halted, saying its decisions in government will “haunt” the party for a long time."
Few will argue with his analysis but I had to laugh when I heard the latest bright idea from Limerick Labour Cllr & Jan O'Sullivan side kick Joe Leddin. Apparently he ( I don't know if he is alone or if there are others as well) wants to discuss banning "opportunistic" Political protest from next year's Limerick St Patricks day parade. .....Way to go Labour...no protests = no problems?
You can hear him talking about this here.Limerick's Live95FM | Article
PIE.IE readers will recall the considerable embarrassment caused to Limerick Labour last March when their leader in the council chamber and current mayor Limerick,Gerry McLoughlin left the podium to pose with anti government protestors....http://www.politics.ie/forum/limeric...overnment.htmll
LOL. Is this why Limerick Labour want to ban "opportunistic" Political protest from next year's Limerick St Patricks day parade
