I came across yet another new political party today.
There seems to be a sudden outbreak of them, so maybe it’s something to do with the measles?
Anyhows, “Independent Ireland” is the latest. I can’t find out anything about them as a search on the Interwebs just throws up articles on the Independent newspaper. I have no idea what their policies are.
Two others I came across recently were “The Irish Freedom Party” and “Ireland First“. What strikes me about these two is that their policies are quite similar. Both talk about clamping down on immigration, scrapping the climate change nonsense and reforming the health system. If I were tempted to vote [which I’m not] then I suppose Ireland First would fit quite nicely except that they want to drag up the old abortion issue again. Talking about dropping the EU and the climate fiasco could possibly outweigh that however.
The gubmint is getting worried about the immigration lark though. The majority of Irish want tighter rules and policies around the problem so now our Lords and Masters are finally admitting there’s a problem and claim to be doing something about it. I’m not holding my breath.
I did a search for a list of Irish political parties and was surprised to see how many there are. Some I had never heard of. Most I would rather forget.
When it comes to politicians and elections, I shall remain disillusioned and disinterested.
Or maybe I should set up a new party?
