O'Brien writes that Larkin's previous and current comments "cause serious damage to the Trade Union and Labour Movement" and that his appointment to the Labour Party Administrative Council, and the subsequent publication of his comments in the 'New Leader' paper, leave the I.T.G.W.U. no choice but to distance themselves from the Party.
