The Green Party have lived up to Patricia McKenna's expectation and have deen destroyed after their corrosive alliance with the great beast Fianna Fail.
Their future as a political party is limited to say the least, and they have lost the reputation for being, maybe naive but honest and principled. Their likes will not be seen again, for the foreseeable future.
There are a couple of other parties that have become more relevant to the political landscape, and it seems to me that the vast majority of people who are posting on the Green threads are only being abusive and making fun at the Greens expense.
There are none left - pardon the pun.
Take them down put socialists or CSP or somebody that someone out there votes for.

Ouch, a deep knife thrust into the dying environmentalists broccoli encrusted heart.

But thus is life. The greens are dead all hail the new greens

Why, has the Green party gone out of the politics business?

Yes, I utterly agree. Also, I presume voters will no longer be polled on their party leader preference from a list that includes Gormley. They now have the same right to recognition as Christian Solidarity, Aine Ni Chonaill or the dessicated corpse of Rex Harrison.

The final humiliation. And quite right too. Remove them and replace them with a group that won seats

Yes by popular demand.
I suggested this at the weekend and only got grief from eco-mentalist types.
Hope you have better luck.

Other parties were often denied sections on P.ie as they had no elected reps in the dial, so by those standards their section should be archived he same way the PD section was.

I disagree I think they could be back depending on other parties sucess at grapping the green vote certainly the "green" movement is not going to die.
They are green votes to be had.

It still has 13 councillers at local level in the 26 counties and 3 in the north
It got just under 2% of the vote in GE 2011 or 41,039
Sp got 26,770
PBp got 21,551

The gloating on here from supporters of other parties is pretty sad. They have been badly led but they are genuine about their policies, aren't crooks and deserve better than to be sneered at. I hope a few of their ex TDs make it back into the Dail in time.

Are they looking for new cleaning staff?

The greens have 3 councillors, not 13. Also, the greens are bound to get 2% if they run a candidate everywhere and have 6 sitting TDs. The socialist party had a lot of strong candidates while the greens were obliterated nearly everywhere they ran. They were completely destroyed in 41 constituencies. Had PBP or the socialist party ran 43 candidates, they'd both be above 2%.

Mary White got the lowest first preferance vote of any sitting td. Give some space to the socialists or christians, the ULA, anybody in fact.
