Luke 'Ming' Flanagan TD joined GUE/NGL grouping in the European Parliament
https://www.facebook.com/Lukemingfla...43937022350284I have joined the GUE/NGL grouping in the European Parliament. In many ways the group fits with my ideals. On issues which I don't agree the good news is that the group is a confederation with no whip. Membership of this group will I believe facilitate me in achieving the best possible result for Ireland.
Ming has a bit of mixed message on it
the video on this page you'll see he very pro-green Luke Ming’s Election disinformation 2014 | Garreth McDaid pro-recycling, reduction, reuse, but he doesn't have time to answer on carbon targets..., the big cliamte questions, any notion of real personal sacrifice for the environment.
he doesn't think its worth risking the water for fracking but will risk water in the bogs ‘Ming, lies and our obliterated raised bogs’ |
he says he takes this position because he doesn't like being people pushed around saves him alot in fuel costs aswell it must
but TDs often asked questions on behalf of others they don't personally agree withLuke Flanagan
