En route to work this morniing I noticed a bunch of posters about the place advertising a public meeting fronted by none other than Declan Ganley. He hasn't gone away you know! The posters are advertising a meeting for "Alternatives for Ireland". Anyone know any more about this? Is the bould Declan about to launch himself on an unsuspecting public again in a new guise?

Saw them myself on the way home from Newstalk last night. Interesting that on the programme both the presenter Marc Coleman and Vincent Martin of New Beginnings were both adamanant that a new Party was on the way.

Alternatives to:
- dumping massive debt on children for banks and to fund lifestyles
- running huge deficits for 6 years
- a three tier health service that is dysfunctional at the point of entry
- zero accountability of political figures?
Yes.

Is Ganley the answer?
No.

Coleman, Martin, Ganley... None of the, actually have what it would take to establish a new party that could be electorally successful.

He is not an alternative. He is just another one who wants there nose in the troth.

Why doesn't he just bugger of back to his US defence contracting and stop trying to annoy everyone.

Even better, he could do something useful. He could transfer every job he has to Ireland, otherwise he is just a parasite.

Ganley is jut more of the same FF neoliberal stuff with a new brand name.

We don't need more of that nonsense in Ireland.

Just in case any of you did not notice the last crash caused by the banking-developer ponzi scheme, if you want an idea of what Ganley would be like running the economy of Ireland, just read this.

Here is the starting point for learning about Ganley.

He's a bright guy, over reached at the last elections by surrounding himself with lunatic candidates, thus turning his party into one of lunatics. Contrast what he tried (Sane person surrounded by loons) to what Grillo did in Italy (Loon with charisma surrounded by pretty centrist young sane candidates).

Needed to be more patient and build a base.

Ultimately though he's just offering a PD solution and the Irish have utterly rejected that solution.

He is a bright guy, I will give him that.

However he is more neoliberal than the PDs. That would mean even less regulation and a bigger crash in the future.

We don't need anymore of that.

The Irish embraced the PDs, the PDs failed to clean up and reform the political system. That's what killed them!

It's not a multiple choice question.

It's taking over from the season of lies that we've endured for the past couple of years.
