Somebody needs a hug and according to Labour’s Ciaran Lynch, it is the weary Fianna Fail party! With three by-elections waiting to be held, the question on everyone’s mind is - when will Fianna Fail name the day.
But Ciaran reckons that Fianna Fail and the Greens are running scared of the electorate - an opinion echoed by Labour leader Eamon Gilmore, Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny and a whole host of opposition TDs.
“The truth is they are too rattled and too traumatised to face the people,” Lynch said.
“In fact, so traumatised are the Soldiers of Destiny that they have been forced to scrap their traditional Ard Fheis and replace it with a series of regional group hugs where the only item on the agenda is the ‘Have a Go at Gilmore’ motion.”
“Fianna Fail are punch drunk and should be put in the recovery position on the opposition benches for a good long time, at the earliest possible opportunity,” he said.
