I have been calling for reform to our political system for many years now, I’ve even had several letters printed in the national press call for such reform, at the time I was a lonely voice in the wilderness. Over the years I have been joined by many like minded individuals and in recent weeks I have also been joined by all the major political parties.
So now that my ideas have seemed to become the accepted doctrine of all, is there a need for someone like me to enter the Dāil?
The short answer is yes, there is, the reason is that all political parties lie, they have lied in the past and will continue to lie in the future, they will promises the voters anything they think that people want , just to get elected, and once they get what they call a “mandate from the people” they quickly forget the promises they gave, the promises that got them this mandate in the first place.
By electing me, I assure you that I will not let them forget what it was that got them elected in the first place and I will use every avenue available to me to make sure that they too act differently by delivering on what it was they promised.
