So, the Anti-Austerity Alliance wing of AAA-PBP is holding its national conference today, and can reflect on a year in which it maintained its TD representation at three, and expanded its geographic reach to Cork City. Still, the fundamental problem at the party's core remains that it continues to be merely a party of protest, reactionary rather than progressive in terms of its perspective on current affairs, and by placing all its proposed solutions in the "increased wealth and corporate tax" baskets, alienate the lower middle-class voter class it would need to become a mass movement. How can they, and their PBP allies reinvent themselves without becoming indistinguishable from Labour, the Greens and the Social Democrats?

Have the Trots of AAA a live link to this ? Will they put a recording of it up on Youtube ? Doubtless they'll be blaming all the evils of the world on Sinn Fein :)

it dosn't say party annual conference https://www.facebook.com/events/115220975631338/ its says AAA Public rally, I know such partys do things like that, invite people unbeknownst to party meetings in order to get them to sign up but?

Commenting on the clothes which female politicians wear is sad and patethetic but why does Ruth Coppinger dress like a lay person who has just taken over as principal of a Sisters of Mercy school?

TBF, the one seat you did take from them was Paul Murphy's, Barry shares a constituency with O'Brien, and the others have been off Labour over recent years.
SF will never have two seats anywhere but Donegal because of AAA/PBP.

SF probably wouldn't win in Dun Laoghaire as there is a better class of pay nothing slum dweller about than in the likes of West Dublin or Ballymun.

FF - lite are good enough at putting their two feet firmly in their gob - they don't need the AAA's help to do that.

And there will be videos up on youtube in the near future.

The public rally follows the conference.
