Labour will soon understand our betrayal

The reality of why the Labour Party has reached its lowest ebb in the eyes of the electorate does not seem to register with the leaders of a party who were once seen as the protectors of the workers.

But then they sanctioned the infiltration of workers pay packets, pensions and social welfare payments.

This betrayal by Labour party politicians will not be forgotten.

The TDs who voted for such laws should hang their heads in shame. Where were their values?

The outcome of the upcoming general election, will no doubt show the damage that has been done by these actions.

It will be a lesson hard learnt by a party that forgot what it stood for.
