Just got some tweets on this event which is happening this evening as I type.

Joan Burton is making a speech on the idea - about what we could expect from a 2nd Republic and why we should have one.

Any Labour activists care to contribute? Because the tweets i'm getting are very very interesting.

It wasnt too long ago that the idea of 2nd Republic was kind of radical and nutty. Now it seems to be entering the mainstream. As I said - feel free to flesh out this thread - i am VERY interested in this event.
