    Default #VinB - Mon 27/5/2013: Surely it is Time for a New Political Party!?




    Guests


    • Declan Ganley - Pro and Anti Europe campaigner and failed politician
    • Noel Whelan - Fianna Fáil wingman and so called political analyst
    • Ben Gilroy - Self Confessed Property Rights Guru and Drama Queen
    • Alison O'Connor - Strong, Independent Woman



    What's Happening?

    Should be a cracker tonight folks. The topic is about does Ireland need new political parties to shake up the Irish political landscape & offer the electorate some real alternatives? Yes, Vincent, I'm sure we all agree at this stage
    Maybe Deccie will make up his mind on whether Europe is good for us or not. Is he relaunching Libertas? Where's DC again??
    Or is Noely here to wag the dogs bollix about Fianna Fáil and how they are Ireland's answer to the crisis caused by...well you guessed it...Fianna Fáil.
    Perhaps Ben Gilroy is here to say that his party which failed in the Bye-election is tomorrows answer for today's problems.
    Alison will be on her monthly cycle throwing Vinnie Evil's.


    Update on Norm

    Yes folks, as you are aware, Norm is on yet another mission. I had to step in for one night only to re-leave AP of his duties so he can grovel to Norm apologising for some dodgy #VinB threads last week.
    Norm is digging for some moles in a far flunk corner of Finland. He hopes to eradicate the threat he has been dealing with for a few weeks now. AP will be back tomorrow to continue the story.
    To be Continued...

    Vinnie should move with the times and do that topic jointly with a social media angle or other online outfit (e.g. politics.ie?) since the evidence from other European countries is that emerging parties have had a heavy social media/Internet presence that at 1st was not obvious in the party political structures.

    Should be an interesting episode but if Ireland needs a new party, it needs a party with real plans and an economic vision as opposed to just a new party for the sake of it. Also, it is hard to see a new party doing well in Dail elections, maybe in locals, but how realistic is it that the political establishment can be challenged at their own game?

    I agree we need a new party. But I don't think Vincent and I would agree on its policies.

    Vincent will be so disappointed.

    We don't need just one new political party - we need a entire new spectrum of political parties to replace the status quo political block that had ruled this country since it's foundation as an independent state.

    Exactly. If a few well-known economists who do have alternative economic strategies ever got the balls to run, it could do the trick. But I think that whether the new party's policies, it needs to focus on curbing overspending and wastage, especially in the Department for Health, which is just insane at this stage.
