Once a Stick, always a stick

The Labour Party has called on the Government to disclose any deal it may have made with Sinn Féin regarding speaking rights in the Oireachtas for Northern politicians.

Labour TD Liz McManus is now calling on the Government to reveal it has agreed to such a move in return for last week's IRA declaration that its war is over.

She said the issue could create further political polarisation in the North and the Government should clarify where it stands.

Now, either McManus is stupid or she is being disingenuous!!

She should know perfectly well that Northern representation in the Oireachtas was a key recommendation of the All-Part Oireachtas report on the Constitution. It is about time "Labour" stopped playing party politics with the constitutional rights of Irish citizens in the 6 counties.
