Snobby Rabbite and Fiddle O’Dea

On today FMs last word Pat Rabbitt called Willie O’Dea “the runt of the cabinet litter”. This came up about during a conversation over the picture in the paper that showed O’Dea pointing a gun at the camera. This seemed to be because Willie O’Dea called Rabbite pompous. Now one thing I have to say about Pat Rabbitte is that he is pompous. For a party that is historically supposed to represent the workers Labour always comes as an we are better then you party. From Rabbitt to Michael D they have this air of superiority that none of the other parties have. Even the PDs and the green party who would derive most of their votes from the wealthier sections of society don’t have this same air. When Charlie McCrevvey was asked if Michael D was a socialist he replied in shock “god no”. The labour movement in this world is following the Tony Blair model of labour. A labour that is gradually trying to place itself as no longer the party of the working class but of the middle class. This is leaving the door open for Sinn Fein to take some of labours traditional seats. If another left wing party was to materialise and fight the next election. If a split in labour happened labour would be in trouble. But Ireland is showing a shift to the right trade unions are beginning to lose there power. In a close to full employment economy where wages are fairly good. Peoples gripe is not with employment but with tax. They want lower taxes. A standard of right wing economics. So maybe labour moving to the right is to be expected. Also considering that the cabinet consists of Martin Cullen and Brian Lenihan I think Wille O’Dea is far from the runt. But maybe Pat Rabbitt considers him the runt as he looks like the runt. Makes you wonder if Mr Rabbitt judges people by their looks? A trait William Martin Murphy would probably been proud of. Oh ya another thing anyone notice the only party that did not critise him was Sinn Fein

I'm still struggling to understand what was going through "Corporal O'Dea's" head when he posed for that pic. Perhaps one of his party colleagues will have a word with him about it!

All this reaction to O'Dea is a bit over the top isn't it? Although I did like Higgin's asking if O'Dea had left his gun at the door, because "if not, I was going to ask Deputy Ferris to go down and disarm him"

Its the silly season again i suppose.

personally I prefer to think of us Labourites as slightly more intellectually focused than the other parties

*ahem*

best thing about that picture is that it ALMOST hides O'Dea's moustache...

you know in the 60s that moustache would have been cool. Maybe Willie is just more trendy then us. I mean 50 cent is always going on about guns maybe O dea is tuning into that vibe. :)
