“Ireland Can Work – Action Plan For Jobs” – Progressive Democrats Autumn 1996 March 6, 2012

From Autumn 1996 “Ireland Can Work – Action Plan For Jobs” from the Progressive Democrats. Its 32 pages long and aside from the cover I’ve also included the Summary page which outlines the problem and solution. In 1996 the Progressive Democrats were in Opposition and there were 230,000 people out of work.

Helen Keogh Crime Survey -Progressive Democrats- Dun Laoghaire 1996 March 7, 2010

A Crime Survey from Dun Laoghaire Progressive Democrat TD, Helen Keogh in 1996.
Crime is one of the political constants, being seen to be tough on Crime or tougher than the others.
So here we have a survey asking about Crime and then asking the constituent to send it back to the TD. Needless to say I’d assume that people who had been victims of crime would be more inclined to return the survey. So hey presto the TD can say “In a survey of constituents I did 50% had been robbed…. etc etc”
It was in 1997 that Fianna Fail ran with its Zero Tolerance policy.
