ULA conference postponed to unknown future date

Just received the email below from the ULA steering committee. The conference has been postponed “due to lack of time”?

Do they think the membership are a bunch of fools? The only reason there was a “lack of time” to prepare for the conference was the steering committee’s incompetence.

It was bad enough that a delegated and decision making conference had been changed into a talk shop but now we have the whole thing called off.

Nothing substantive has changed between these two announcements of the steering committee. If there is not enough time now, there was not enough time then.

Either there is another reason for the postponement which they don’t want to be made public or this is a case of monstrous incompetance and the steering committee should seriously consider standing down.

I am writing this on the train on the way to the Cork ULA branch meeting. Someone has got a lot of explaining to do…

Dear all,

due to lack of time it was proposed and agreed that the United Left AllianceConference for 2012 will be postponed until a later date. Therefore, the steering committee will be meeting next week to discuss the rearrangements which will be circulated to members as soon as possible.

Also, we would like to bring your attention to the fact that TDs Clare Daly and Richard Boyd Barrett from the United Left Alliance will meet
representatives from the EU/IMF/ECB Troika later today, Tuesday 17th January, and their statements will be circulated tomorrow.

Finally, we urge everybody to be part of the mass campaign against the household tax and help promote the work in the area. Meetings are being
organised all over the country and the feedback we are getting is very encouraging. Please note that the hotline number for the campaign is
