DUBLIN WEST, LABOUR LEADER & ARMED GARDA ESCORT
I live in Dublin West constituency for many years and, although not a native, I find the people here as decent, angry, vulnerable and affable as all other Irish people.
That a woman, a Labour Party ‘leader’ would be looking for votes – that act itself implies you think you have some popularity – while having an armed Garda escort is the most bizarre thing I have ever heard in the weird world of Irish politics.
Either the woman is so delusional and loathing of her own constituents that she thinks she needs it, or even worse the GARDAI think she is so despised they cannot guarantee her safety without guns on an election campaign.
Either way it is a sad day for any party, but especially the now disgraced Labour Party, that this is happening.
