Labour defections over Budget? Who would that be then? December 3, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, The Left.
A number of TDs said last night they expected the party to suffer more defections on the budget vote to add to the four Dáil members who have already lost the whip.
The numbers involved are expected to be small and should not therefore endanger the Government majority.
However, at least one backbencher said that, based on the details of the budget leaked so far, he saw his immediate future outside the parliamentary party opposing cuts rather than defending “the indefensible”.
I’m wracking my brain to think of who would be likely to walk now. Any suggestions?
