Irish Green Party vote to stay with porketeriat


Reports on Irish Green Party conference. The motion on holding a convention next year to discuss remaining in government was defeated. So they are continuing on with Fianna Fail. Lots of discussion about removing corruption and corporate funding from Irish politics. At the end of the day very little radical content however.

Just got this, shocking, all about position, nothing about power, what is a motorway/corruption/bus cuts/extra cash from bankers betweeen friends?

Politics is often about a meal ticket...green politics must be about change to achieve an ecological society...by this definition the Irish Party are not greens.
