“Reject the Old Politics -Vote Pat Rabbitte Number 1” -Workers Party -1989 General Election -Dublin South West March 16, 2013


From the 1989 General Election a leaflet for then Workers Party councillor Pat Rabbitte. The leaflet attacks the local TDs Sean Walsh and Chris Flood as well as Progressive Democrat TD Mary Harney. It also contains an appeal for Labour voters to transfer to The Workers’ Party and for Workers’ Party voters to transfer to Labour.
There is also a piece from WP Councillor Don Tipping.
In this 1989 General Election Rabbitte polled 7,166 votes and took a Dail seat for the first time, a seat he has held onto ever since.
There are also quotes from various magazines and newspapers on how good Rabbitte is!
Many thanks to the sender.
