A Better Ireland

Time for Political Change

With the publication of the Mahon Report, in which he concluded, “that corruption was rife at every level of the political system.” Is it not then time to look at the political system itself. After all, if our system which was fashioned by these same individuals that have been exposed as having been self-serving, corrupt [...]

Inspired by the following excerpt from Michael D. Higgins inauguration speech… “it is necessary to move past the assumptions which have failed us and to work together for such a different set of values as will enable us to build a sustainable social economy and a society which is profoundly ethical and inclusive. A society [...]

join me

Having reflected on my recent entry into politics and on a decision whether I should run again as an Independent or not, I have come to the realisation that the problem that we have with politics in Ireland is a systemic one and if it is ever to improve then the system has to change. [...]

bureaucracy gone mad

As many of you may know, I ran as an Independent candidate in the last general election, the Monday after the count I rang the office of the returning officer to enquire as to whether I need to submit my expenses or did any other documentation need taking care of. As I had not been [...]

Should election manifestos be legal contracts?

Should political parties be legally obliged to follow through on their election manifestos if they find themselves in Government after the election? After all it is the manifesto that they bring to the people pre election that gets them elected, well at least is should be. In my opinion it makes a complete mockery of [...]

Help wanted

As an independent candidate, it is very difficult to get elected under our present political system. Most Independents are elected on single issue items, like getting a new road built or keeping a hospital open. Issues like these do even more damage to an already flawed political system. I want the system changed and as [...]

Calling on all Fine Gael supporters.

For the good of your party, I call on you to give me your number one vote in the upcoming election. This may seem a strange request especially when I say that a vote for me will be in the best Interest of the party you support. Let me explain, the political system in Ireland [...]

Why are we not demanding change?

It is funny, but since I’ve decided to run in the upcoming general election, most people that know, agree with me that the political system in Ireland needs to change, and everyone of them wants it to change, yet all of them believe that change is not possible. This is a sad reflection of our [...]

Finance Minister in waiting, God help us.

Labours spokesperson for finance Joan Burton went into some kind of post budget tirade about how the budget would not enable people to shop more, she compared walking down Grafton Street a few years ago with today, back then she remarked you would see people walking down the street with several bags of shopping whereas [...]

Time to demand change

Article one of our constituent states:

“The Irish nation hereby affirms its inalienable, indefeasible, and sovereign right to choose its own form of Government, to determine its relations with other nations, and to develop its life, political, economic and cultural, in accordance with its own genius and traditions.”

to my site, having sat through the turmoil of the last few years, I'm frustrated, I want the Government out and out now, but having thought on it, I came to the realisation that there is no real alternative. All the political parties support and partake in this sham that we call Democracy. So that is why I have decided to run in the next General Election.

I believe that what needs fixing first is our system of Government, giving the people of Ireland a real say in how this Country is run. Real local Government and a smaller National Government. that acts on National issues
