The bulk of the banksters money went to Fianna Fail for several election but the bulk of the corporate muck money, now flows from party to party, which includes Fine Gael and Labour. Either way the same targets are achieved, bigger profits for corporations. The sums of money thrown at these Irish politicians, particularly Fine Gael for the next election are mind boggling even by gombeen Fianna Fail standards.  read full story / add a comment

Political parties are not mentioned in the Constitution.

A new campaign is currently being launched, with the aim of giving people a real alternative to the Fine Gael/Labour coalition that is on the cards - and returning true democracy to Ireland.

The public are urged to come to a meeting in the Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin, tonight (Thursday), and tomorrow night, at 8.00pm.

Sunday 21 November, the day the Irish government formally applied for a bailout to the EU and IMF, should be marked as the day that the Irish capitalist class were exposed as a rotten, despicable failure, bankrupt in every sense and incapable of offering any way forward. The significance of these developments cannot be overstated; they are a turning point in Irish history and will impact on other countries in Europe and the EU itself. read full story / add a comment

Politics in this country has been made muddy by decades of civil war divisions, clientilism and corruption. As a result the political discourse required for significant social change is constricted. Now is an opportunity to change the Irish political landscape forever, for all progressive groups to demand that FF disband. Here are my Top 10 reasons. I'm sure there are more. read full story / add a comment

OBama and his regime bailed out the rich in the last two years. Working peoples lives were getting harder and harder. the Union leaders backed the Obama regime. So many working people felt they had no other way to protest the Obama regime's right wing policies but to vote Republican. See the real mood in this article. read full story / add a comment

The right recognized the anger in American society against Wall Street, the Banks and their capitalist system and politicians. They acted to fill the vacuum. The union leaders, the left and anti capitalist movement did not recognize the mood nor the vacuum. They did not act. read full story / add a comment

With all the talk of who should govern the country, and how much Brian Cowen drank.
There is still the fact that the Irish people are being led around like hapless sheep.
It would not matter a damn who got into power, because the banks, EU and the IMF
(in the near future) would be the ones calling all the shots. read full story / add a comment

In an article in the "Sunday Tribune" on 25th July 2010, Conor McMorrow wrote about the "parachute candidate". The question that can now be asked is what the future holds and what is going to happen to the Labour Party in Sligo/N Leitrim, now that the general public and the dogs in the street, are aware that all is not well within the local party.? what a way to start an election campaign.
What if anything is going to happen?
there are some interesting comments attached to the web link below.

For too long the Irish people have had to settle for excuses when we seek answers from our government. Not once have we gotten a straight or wholly truthful answer. We ask why it is that the people that are most affected by the recession are punished while those that presided over it, those that perpetrated it, get off with a slap on the wrist.
