    Default Senator Alan Kelly and his neo con funding links?

    The 2008 SIPO report on political donations showed that Labour's Alan Kelly was the biggest receiver of personal/corporate donations in the Oireachtas at circa €35k. Among those those donations were 3 from the same address - €2400 each from Nessa and Michael Madden and a donation of €5000 from RONOC International, €2500 of which was subsequently returned. A net donation of €7300. Michael Madden is the MD of RONOC International as well other companies. RONOC and its associated companies are involved in financial services such as money transfer.
    29/04/09 - Donations Disclosed by TDs, Senators and MEPs for 2008, Standards in Public Office Commission

    There is nothing untoward with the above, however, if you do a google of RONOC International and Michael Madden the MD you are drawn to a link between them and what can be best described as a UK based neo con think tank called 'The Defence and Security Forum'. www.defenceandsecurity.com

    The Defence and Security Forum describe themselves as:
    The Defence and Security Forum was founded by Lady Olga Maitland in 1983. It was originally a campaigning organisation known as Families for Defence launched to challenge the anti-nuclear protest movements such as CND. Families for Defence’s remit was to promote the NATO case for multilateral nuclear disarmament. In the course of doing so the purpose was to focus on the importance of a proper provision for the defence of the United Kingdom.
    It appears that Mr Madden was a speaker at a conference on April 6-7th this year at the 'Naval and Military Club, St James Sq., London' organised by The Defence and Security Forum. The conference was on the financial global trade and money transfer.

    The links are tangential for sure but very odd for an alleged 'Socialist' Labour Party Senator and aspiring MEP. Declan Ganley has been berated in the media and of course on p.ie for not a lot more in speaking at such conferences, yet not a word about a Labour Senator who is being partially financed by some very curious links?

    neo conism is a strange and dangerous affair

    OMM, do you now intend to target Alan Kelly in the same way? Or is that treatment only reserved for opponents of the democratically-rejected Lisbon Treaty?

    This is surely a British rather than a US connection. Who exactly is Alan Kelly?

    A lazy term of abuse used by socialists against anyone who disagrees with them.

    Correct. Libertas have not called for the extermination of millions of human-beings in concentration camps, 'Living Space', euthanasia against the elderly etc. That is fascism.
