    Default Fine Gael- Becoming a movement

    Fine Gael are going to have to become a movement if they want to get in Government again and indeed remain a/the major party.

    Fianna Fáil are a movement and I think that Fine Gael members should study them.

    From my experience of being in Fine Gael the "do-ers" really are nice people and are republicans. However the party has a lot of hangers-on who are misfits.

    Chiefly

    - I think that Fine Gael are going to have to become a movement like Fianna Fáil in that all members really subscribe to the ideals of working with Nationalist people, in particular, in the North to bring about a united Ireland. And subscribe to the aspiration that the country will become truly bilingual in terms of the Irish and English languages.


    - I think Fine Gael need to get rid of the idea that Fianna Fáil are inherently corrupt.

    - Fine Gael need to get rid of the misfits.

    - Change your meetings location (they shouldn't be in pubs anyway)- the hangers on are so conservative that most of them would not bother with the new routine.

    - We live in the 21s century and the social media has value. Get some good posters on Politics.ie; start websites and write reasonably humanely on them.

    - One person can make all the difference and if you hear what I am saying then you will really think about what I am saying.

    Regards,

    Darren

    Really poor OP. So essentially you want Fine Gael to stop have meetings in pubs and tell their members to use politics.ie? Maybe wrap the green flag around themselves a bit more too?

    The reason people joined FG rather than FF included knowing the difference between their head and their bowels.

    Fine gael (and every other party) are already a movement, a true-democracy deterring bowel movement where sheepish morans blindly put party loyalty before country and the people who elected them to represent them, not their party.

    No- that all members would subscribe to a united Ireland and show that through their demonstration of that.

    Their public representatives should have websites and if they believe in the power of one person (I don't use it as a cliche) they should write reasonably humanely/humanely on them.

    In relation to this site, yes they should have at least one poster who is good. Ideally more of course.

    From this staggeringly silly OP, I had to draw attention to this piece.

    Fine Gael must have hundreds and hundreds of cummann across the country. What makes you think they all meet in pubs?

    Darren, FG dont believe in Nationalism. They believe in a multicultural pro-immigration Ireland with Irish speakers being a smaller and smaller % of the population. You are not going to get anywhere with them. They dont have any sort of serious ideology really much like the rest of the Irish parties.

    The last movement that was serious about promoting Irish politically was Ailtirí na hAiséirghe. You might seek out if any of their members are still alive.
    ..the Irish nation can become other than white, by privileging the voices of the racialised and subverting state immigration but also integration policies. – Ronit Lentin
