The ULA is born ,maybe this will give people an option as opposed to the cosy cartel of right wing degenerates .

70% of Irish People would be working class (if they could get a job) and with the Labour party more right than left and Sinn Fein still trying to break through this will be another left option for first preferences and transfers.

Isn't there only 20 candidates mostly based in Dublin, not much of a choice. I wouldn't rule out voting for them but there are no candidates in most of the country.

Just because Joe Higgins, Richard Boyd Barrett etc etc united under a new banner does not make them any more than the inept clowns they always were.

FF are inept clowns par excellence no question.
FG and Labour are tweedle dum to their tweedle dee - just a different shade of muppet.

I am not going to vote for a bunch of saps who want to turn this country into a hermit society like Higgins and Barrett et al want to.

We need to rebuild this country again and that means we maintain political and economic freedom above all else. We need hard line Marxist ideology like a hole in the head.

Yet another attempt by a marginalised gang of political thugs and jackals to 'mobilise' the 'working class', most of whom would not give them the time of day let alone vote them into a position with any degree of influence over their lives.

Verdict: Born screaming abuse and invective at those around them but died soon after, thank god!!

I'll be glad to see some proper left wing voices in the Dail. It's just a pity they were missing for the last few years (unless you include SF who are not really respected)

G'wan Joe! Gritty, consistant, fiercely intelligent, and he surprised us all in '97 when he stuck to his word and donated half his TD's salary to his party. I'm no Socialist, but what we need now are non-establishment candidates who aren't party puppets. We need to shake things up, so I say good luck to them.

The Socialist Party is going to regret joining that mish mash rabble.
Why should they. This is just the type of political vermin to which they belong. Joe along with the rest of his scumbags will feel very much at home!

I've a theory about the donating half to the party thing. I bet the donation simply covers the cost of running for election etc which, were he independent he'd have to cover himself anyhow. Therefore the gesture may be quite cynical.

now having said that, I freely admit my ignorance on the topic and I may very well be entirely wrong. I'm sure folks with more knowledge of how these things work can correct me

Their plan is to heavily tax the rich.

Yeah, let's incentivise lack of ambition, lack of education, lack of success.

20 seats is laughable.

At best they'll get five (two SP, Two PbP, and Healy), though more than likely it'll be easily three.

It'll split within 5 years max.

Intelligent? He is a deranged lunatic that thinks that a 19th century genocidal maniac has any relevance to Ireland.

Heavily tax the rich or fairly tax the rich.

How do you measure success a big bank account or high morals.

Lack of Education ,Irish elites are educated but very dumb, education is not a measure of intelligence.

The group has said it will become an alternative to a Fine Gael/Labour government following the next General Election.

Seriously, they should at least run more candidates, unless of course they can't afford it. :roll:

It'll split up over some obscure reason or another. I can't see them getting the numbers to form their own group. I wish the group well certainly but it's little more than a collection of personal electoral machines.
