…politically on the left for some, with both the Workers’ Party Ard Fheis and the Social Democrats conference (or should that be the centre-left as the SD’s position themselves as such?).

Yes. A bit of media attention for the SD conference. Looked like a decent crowd in attendance. Acquaintance of mine from years ago announced on Facebook that he was there.
The WP page on Facebook was amusing too. An appeal to comrades to finish their pints, coffees and baguettes and get back to conference as it was about to restart. Whatever happened to revolutionary discipline?

I’d be interested to hear what comes out of the WP conference. Less so SD.

Baguettes? Fraternal delegates from France, perhaps?

As a delegate, I saw no sign of a baguette around the place. Just good home made sangers to the fore!

See GW’s request above Enzo. Any chance you’d post something up about what came out of the conference?

The Swedish comrades from DNW had a baguette.

Shouldn’t the Swedish comrades be eating smörgås instead, it being uppity to eat, or have knowledge of, anything foreign sounding (according to Roddy’s theories on national culinary determinism).

They’re internationalists Liberius, on temporary loan to the WP from their party back home.

A real workers’ party would be eating gur cake in Dublin, baps in Belfast and blas in Waterford.

Discussing international cuisine should always be done in an affected nasal French accent a la Ruairi Quinn!
