Gerry Adams made a big contribution to politics with his statement on the EU and IMF and has shown the way out of the mess that the political establishment and their EU and IMF overlords have saddled the Irish People with for the next 20 to 50 years. As well as defaulting we need to free ourselves from the IMF shackles and to leave the EU as soon as we can. read full story / add a comment

For traditional Irish republican socialists there are certain realities and difficult choices facing us in the very near future. With the reality of the EU being with us for the foreseeable future and an impending general election in the southern scum state, there are some very difficult choices to be made by committed activists. We can continue with our old policy of boycotting elections, which frankly if we are honest with ourselves, has not been progressive. One of the options that will have to be considered, with a major shift in the re-alignment of political forces, probable after the next election, is tactical voting or voting for the lesser of the evils, who are genuine contenders to be part of Government after the next election. Obviously the two right wing parties of failed Fianna Fail and fascist blue shirt Fine Gael are not an option for any socialist republican, which leaves lackey Labour and provisional Sinn Fein. read full story / add a comment

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

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
