I think the interest rate we have to pay is too high and I believe borrowing that much money and transferring it straight to the banks without bondholders not having to follow the rules of the game, is untenable."
I think I know what he is trying to say.

A very talented operator, a great public speaker and a good bloke.
I'm very sad to see this, though I suppose it's yet another wake-up call.

But this is following on from a whole string of resignations of similar people and I am told the problem goes back to long before the last general election.

What is the underlying reason? That is what needs to be addressed as this resignation is a symptom.

Agreed.

But ..... many would say too little too late. He should have done a lot more much sooner than this. He's now tainted by this administration and difficult to see how he'll have much of a future in politics over the next 10 yesrs.

Thats a pity, but systematic of the genuine damage the Green PP have done to Green politics in Ireland. This guy could have been a political star ... not now.

Symptomatic?

He's young yet. I'd say you haven't heard the last of him.
I hope the Green movement will come back together after the election, when we are in opposition and certain people have vanished off the scene.
Whatever about now, in the future there will be no point in having a fragmented green movement. The issues are too important.

Never heard of the guy. Never knew such a post existed.

A tragic setback for nonentities.

Speaking from experience, the party leadership doesn't tolerate dissent, disagree with the twats and you are gone.

Ironical he would have voted on the motion to expell me, when I tried to raise issues on the way the leadership was taking the party.

Maybe he finally realised what the problem really is, a bunch of south side wannabe tossers.

He may be a wonderful guy, I don't know. But in the public eye he'll just be one more rat deserting the sinking ship.

That is basically what I keep hearing and it would appear has been the way for a very long time!
