Well the buffoons who slabber about the British Labour Party organising in Norn Iron seem to have a new name. Labour Party Representation Committee or some such nonsense.
To recap, the British Labour Party with the exception of a few weirdos like “our own…our very own Kate Hoey” dont want to organise in Norn Iron. It is simple enough…the Irish Labour Party has the Dublin franchise for European Socialist Parties and SDLP have the Belfast franchise.
Naturally I like to see the Irish Labour Party do well in Republic of Ireland. Naturally I lke to see the English Labour Party do well in England. And I love to see Plaid Cymru do well in Wales and Scottish Nationalist Party do well in Scotland.
Seriously does anyone think that if Ballyclare’s greatest export, Kate Hoey had not ended up in London, she would be bothered being a member of Labour Party in South Antrim. Always struck me as more DUP or UUP material.
Anyway the Norn Iron Labour lot claims to have 1,200 members and 600 supporters in Norn Iron. I have the awful feeling that I might be one. I replied to a British Labour email before the 2015 Westminster Election. And periodically they send me emails. At a conference I attended (Malone House Hotel 10th March 2012), the membership figure was around 170 members.
To avoid any doubt, I have unsubscribed from British Labours mailing list.
