The Socialist Party has been in discussion with others on the left with a view to forming an Electoral Alliance for the Local Elections which will take place in June 2009. These discussions have been publicly carried in the pages of our paper "the Socialist" and on sites such as this. The Socialist Party has put forward a very positive proposal for a local election slate of candidates. It is important the slate would field credible candiates with a record in the their area that there is political agreement with the programme of the slate which will flow from discussions. We feel these issues among others mentioned in the material below are extremley important if we are to get aggreement. This is why in these proposals we have provided fuller elaboration of our position in an open, honest and constructive manner we hope that other groups will respond in kind. read full story / add a comment
Deputy Pat Breen surrounded by a crowd of admirers

Pat Breen, Fine Gael TD from Bunratty, showed that he's been listening to the lies about natural resources, and he believes them, when he spoke about Corrib in the Dáil.

The sad thing is that his acceptance of the nonsense peddled by Shell and the Green Party means that instead of an opposition testing and challenging the government we have a docile and pointless group of placemen waiting for a chance to get into government simply to get a few things for their constituents and jobs for their friends. read full story / add a comment

Political Quiz:

You were the Fianna Fáil Minister for Finance during the last few years. There is a massive economic crash landing happening because of your policies, which focused economic activity on selling houses to each other rather than building up things like education, culture, home grown industry etc. What do you do now?

1.Make the poor pay- strip funding from pensioners, students, schoolkids and the under-priviliged.

2.Blame the international situation.

3.Blame the people who voted against Lisbon.

4. Put your hands up, admit your mistakes, and invest in basic services which will make the recession a bit more bearable for everyone.

(hint- this is Fianna Fáil remember...)

Anyway, at least he's not Enda Kenny. read full story / add a comment
