Be part of the Solution; vote Labour on June 5th

Posted on June 04, 2009 at 01:05 PM

The elections tomorrow are important - the most important 'mid-term' elections I can remember.

Certainly, they are an opportunity for the people to pass their verdict on Fianna Fáil.

But they are much more than that. They also give each of us the chance to convert protest into purpose. To be part of something new. To start the work of national recovery, by shaking up politics.

For weeks now, I have been inspired by the people I have met on the campaign trail. I have heard so many stories of anxiety and loss. So many people whose future has been put on hold. What I have heard also, is a real determination to do what it takes to get through the recession, and a deep desire to be part of the solution.

I believe that Labour is offering the vision, the leadership, the ideas and the hope that can take us out of this recession, and begin to build a better future for our children. So, I am asking people, not just to protest, but to be part of setting our country in a new direction.

I am asking everyone to put their trust in the ideas and leadership that Labour has been offering, and to vote Labour on Friday.

Thank you,

Eamon Gilmore TD
Leader of the Labour Party
