Reform Alliance – a non-political Political Party

I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.

And what, you ask is causing this disquiet?

There is a conference on in Dublin today, held by Reform Alliance.

What's wrong with that and who the fuck are Reform Alliance anyway, you ask?

Well, Reform Alliance are a new political party who spends its time denying it's a political party.  It is essentially a bunch of rejects from the other parties, and when you examine the caliber of the main parties you'll realise how bad a motley crew they are.  And this non-political party is holding its conference today.

One of their leading lights is Lucinda Creighton who, as a leading light is about as bright as a 1 Watt bulb when it's switched off.  Need I say more?

So what has me so apprehensive?

I have a nasty feeling in my water that this political party which says it isn't a political party is going to declare itself a political party and contest the next elections.  And the Plain People of Ireland who are sick of the current political parties are going to vote for this political party [even though it isn’t one].

They are full of ideological crap about reforming the political system but essentially they are just playing with the Titanic's lifeboats.  There is nothing new there that I have seen.  They want to reform this and they want to reform that but essentially we are looking at exactly the same scenario but with different faces leering at us from the television and milking us for all we're worth.

And worst of all, we'd have that empty headed bimbo Creighton cluttering up the news all the time.

    Please bin the comment trapped by it's links. No idea what has buggered it up but here is what I was trying to say.

    “You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
    To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

    “Humans beings always do the most intelligent thing…after they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked”
    ― Richard Buckminster Fuller

    • The site starts to get a bit miffed of there are more than two links [I think it’s 2] and assumes it's spam.  Sorry about that.

      I couldn't agree more.  The system has failed abysmally both here and in the UK.  Here, we give 0.004% of the population the ability to make any decisions they like, do what they like with the country [and us] and have free rein with our money, without us having any control whatsoever.  That power is absolute for up to five years and they can do one hell of a lot of damage in that time, as we have bitterly discovered many times.

      The system is rotten to the core, and like any building with bad foundations the whole thing should be torn down.

    Remind me never to drink tea or any other hot beverages while reading your threads.

    • Lucinda is a tad horny about Europe is she not?

      This was YFG poster for Nice. It was designed by none other than Lucinda Creighton the current Minister for European Affairs. Says it all about our ruling classes slavish attitudes to the European Empire

  3. Grandad, I'll join you and other kindred spirits (40 degrees under proof) in casting our votes for the Radical Disorganized Independents Non-Party Alliance whenever I'm in the oul sod for elections. As usual I'll give my No. 1 vote to the candidate I deem to have the least chance of being elected, and No. 2 to the next no-hoper and so on…

    • and that is precisely how the crap system that is in place today came about and why it persist. Voting for the 'least worst option' or the most unlikely option or even simply spoiling the voting paper is taken by the government to mean you agree with government. The end colour of government is irrelevant as it always wins.

      Take a few minutes and listen to this fine lady and her take on 'what it takes'.

      It's worth repeating

      “You never change things by fighting the existing reality.

    • My apologies for the tardy response.  Indeed, I hadn't come across that before and it was fascinating.  A bit baffling though that Ireland's first inhabitants were Hebrews from Greece?  Takes a while to get the old head around that? 

      • Well just to mess with your head a tad more or better yet suggest that the history that is pushed on us once we understand the concept of a past by the ever so honest state be it Irish or British have a butchers/listen to this chap, Alan Wilson.

        After listening to everything I can find about him and his fellow historian Baram Blackett (great moniker) I can honestly say my mind has been opened and not before time.
        According to Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett there were two king Arthurs and without wanting to spoil the talk too much it seems that in their day the world was just as 'connected' as it is today.
        It's an hour and a half well spent so if some global warming arrives and you cannot find any old machines to do up or shelves to fight with sit down and enjoy.

        PS

        I never swallowed the 'Romans are great' bull and have actually seen vitrified rocks alongside Hadrians wall. The point of this statement will become clear once you've seen the talk.
