    Default Gilmore tells reps spend 2 hours a week on constituency work

    Apparently at the recent Labour party national executive meeting Eamon Gilmore announced that every public rep should be spending at least 2 hours a week on constituency work!!

    What else would they be doing? Catch up at the back guys!

    And does anyone else find it highly ironic that the operation he wants base the party on is the Taoiseach's own constituency organisation in St Lukes?!

    I heard Ned O'Keeffe on the radio this morning saying that all he did up until January 15th was go to the races in Leopardstown and Limerick, but then the weather broke, so he went back to do a bit of constituency work.
    The only way to change the world is to win elections.

    Yes your are right, the opposition are pathetic, Enda Kenny should resign as should Eamonn Gilmore, that's it thread over.

    He also said each Deputy should bring forward ONE policy proposal each Dáil session. Now that still leaves a lot of time to do something back in the constituency.

    I'm just shocked that they needed to be told this kind of stuff.
