    Default Declan Ganley suggests setting up another political party

    Most of us are well versed on Declan Ganley.

    The founder of politics.ie (David Cochrane) used to canvass for Declan Glanely.

    Declan Ganley has suggested setting up a new political party. See: http://www.thejournal.ie/dg regulations would eclan-ganley-new-political-party-847837-Apr2013/

    Ganley seems to be proposing a right of center party.

    The problem I see with that is this. FG are in the right of center in Ireland.

    However Ganleys politics are not right of center for Ireland. His policies would be right of center in the USA as in US republican party. In Ireland his policies would be far right combined with no business regulation at all.

    His approach to banking would most likely be to reduce banking regulation.

    Any reduction to the light touch banking regulations that Ireland presently has, would set Ireland up for an even bigger bust and boom with even higher levels of unsustainable debt, than at present.

    Also with Ganley's more or less integration into the US military-industrial complex, I can envision him taking Ireland not only into NATO, but using it as a launch pad for any nutcase ideas that the US right would come up with and getting Irish troops involved on the ground in actual combat.

    That is my opinion, regarding what an actual Ganley government would do.

    What is your opinion?

    My opinion is you are talking hysterical rubbish as usual. I'd be delighted to see Ganley setting up a party. The more choice the merrier.

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    This has to be an Aprils Fools Day special. He already has a party. But it did not work out.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Ireland needs a new political party, but it doesn't need Declan Ganley.

    I hope it is, but I have a feeling it is not.

    Thats my opinion as well. However I would go a bit further.

    I think Ireland needs genuinely new left of center, center and right of center political parties that are not made up of people from the various vested interests, so as to create genuine change from the bankrupt thinking of the older parties.

    Fair play to Mr Ganly.Nobody should be afraid of another name on a ballot paper, that is the
    basis of our democracy, Great credit to anyone left or right who has the courage to put their name on a ballot paper,

    The PD's would be classed as communist in Ganley's thinking.

    Dunno if this is an April Fool or not, but a low tax, anti-EU party would get a minimum of 20% support, minimum,

    But Ribser won't be voting for any defence contractors,
