The mood of the Labour membership ‘is very very cool’? How do they know? April 19, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Opinion in the Labour Party has hardened against another coalition with Fine Gael, with strong indications that party members will reject such a proposal.
And various ‘senior LP’ figures are quoted as saying they’re against the idea.
But curiously bar them not one LP member is quoted as regards their views. Everything seems to be second or third hand or mediated through those who are ‘close’ to the LP leadership…
Tánaiste Joan Burton and Minster for Public Expenditure Brendan Howlin were said by sources to be “very sceptical” about another coalition and it was added that the reaction from the party grassroots had been “very, very, cool”.
It matters not one bit but interesting to see this narrative take hold.
