Gilmore confirms confidence vote

Labour leader Eamon Gilmore confirmed today that his party would move a motion of no confidence in the Taoiseach on Tuesday.

"The events of this week put beyond doubt that this is a dysfunctional government led by a Taoiseach who has lost all sense of judgment and all touch with reality," Mr Gilmore said.

"The level of bitterness between the two parties in government, with accusations of duplicity and lying flying across the airwaves, hardly suggests a cohesive cabinet capable of dealing with any issue over the coming weeks.

"The longer this broken and politically dishevelled government clings to power the longer the process of national recovery will be postponed."
