    Default The end of the road for Howlin

    After two years in charge Howlin has managed to make Labour even less relevant and more unpopular than at any time before.
    Last poll was 3%
    Looks like his Cllrs have had enough

    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.

    South Dublin County Councillor Pamela Kearns said Mr Howling should step down in the interest of the party.
    "It is important therefore that I clarify to the House that in the first instance there are significant monies within Anglo-Irish to take the strain of loan losses arising over the next three or four years, before State support is engaged." Brian Lenihan 15/01/09

    SF have stolen all the votes from :

    dole spongers
    open-door immigration heads
    PC loons
    ethnics
    all immigrants except for brits ( maybe )
    feminists
    LGBT'S
    Eastern european Catholics
    Any fool who believes previous links with the 'Ra and a few green logo's actually equates to Nationalism/Patriotism.

    not much pickings left ( pardon the pun ). Crumbs from the rich woman's table.

    Maybe Labour Ireland should look to their UK counterparts and go for the muslim vote ? Its a constituency with a big future. Just ask Corbyn about all his antiSemitism scandals. Ask Sadiq Khan about knife crime not being connected to 'stop and search'.

    New Labour , new Ireland.
    How about gender-balance in immigration into ireland ? Is it currently 40 blokes arriving for every 1 woman arriving on these shores ?

    The party's over
    It's time to call it a day
    They've burst your pretty balloon
    And taken the moon away...
    Howlin didn't destroy the Labour Party, no more than Joan Burton or even Pat Rabbitte. It was on the way out from the moment it abandoned the working people in favour of the takers and shakers who own our republic. Now it's too late to do another about turn and go back to the people it betrayed. That horse has bolted.

    Jan O'Sullivan would make a reasonable choice.

    Jan O'Sullivan has made her choice - betrayal of the working-class.

    The irrelevance of Labour predates Howlin... but he's an easy scapegoat for ostriches...
