Labour brushes off McDowell

Labour have brushed off suggestions of a debate between Pat Rabitte and Michael McDowell saying the Tainiste's party is too small to merit a face off with Labour.

RTÉ has written to the parties proposing a six-way leaders' debate before a live studio audience, plus two further debates - one between Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and the alternative taoiseach, Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny, and the other between the Tánaiste and the alternative tánaiste, Pat Rabbitte.

According to Labour the PDs are a niche party that will contest only a limited number of seats while the Labour Party will contest every constituency.

"We are simply not prepared to accept that the Labour Party or its leader should be relegated to some political second division with the Progressive Democrats."
