WHEN IRISH EYES ARE CRYING
OUR TEAM DONATES ITS TIME. CAN YOU DONATE TOO email@example.com
GEORGE ORWELL prophetically remarked, ‘a people who elect corrupt politicians are not victims, but accomplices.’ The outcome of the Irish General Election on February 8 suggests that the Irish electorate have yet to learn this lesson.
Mainstream media, an integral part of Ireland’s crooked system, were jubilant: ‘Populist far-right parties have failed to return a single candidate to the 33rd Dáil (parliament), polling a slim percentage of first-preference votes in every constituency they stood in.
The Irish Freedom Party and the National Party stood candidates in 21 separate locations, receiving 2% or less of first-preference votes in every instance. Both parties campaigned on platforms of Euro-scepticism and called for controlled immigration, but failed to convert their message across the country,’ media crowed.
The biggest dents made by the Irish Freedom Party were in Cork North-West, where it won 2% of first-preference votes, Clare (1.2% of first preferences), and Dublin Bay North (1.1%).
The National Party won its biggest first-preference shares in Dublin South-Central (1.5%), Dublin North-West (1.5%) and Longford-Westmeath (1%). Both parties received less than 1% of first-preference votes in 15 constituencies, and many candidates were eliminated in the first and second counts.
However, some proved more transfer-friendly, such as Ben Gilroy of the Irish Freedom Party, who got almost 1,000 additional votes before his elimination on the seventh count in Dublin Bay North. Two far-right candidates connected to a non-party movement, Anti-Corruption Ireland, also failed to win seats in the Dáil.
In Dún Laoghaire, John Waters was eliminated on the first count after winning 925 first-preference votes, 1.5% of the constituency’s total.
Two independent candidates not attached to the far-right or far-right parties did manage to win seats despite also making ‘controversial comments about asylum seekers and migrants last year’. Elsewhere, independent candidate Noel Grealish was elected to the second seat in Galway West.
Last year, he was accused of disgraceful racism after he asked in the Dáil about money being sent out of Ireland by foreign nationals.
The National Party’s website is quite clear as to the problems facing Ireland and the solutions necessary for fixing the broken nation:
‘A Páirtí Náisiúnta (National Party) is an Irish nationalist party dedicated to the fulfilment of the Irish national idea. We believe in the Irish people, our right to exist as a nation and our right to defend and lay claim to our homeland. We seek an Ireland united, Irish and free.
We stand against the criminal financial institutions which have enslaved future generations of Irish men and women to debt without end. We stand against the corrupt and amoral establishment who push replacement-level immigration which will in time completely destroy Irish nationality. We stand against the project of a federated European Superstate which is explicitly anti-national and therefore anti-Irish. And most of all we stand against the decay of national spirit at the heart of our society.
The men and women who died for Ireland fought always against that most insidious of enemies, the enemy within; the corruption of the national spirit by foreign ideas, interests and outlooks, all of which are in evidence today in that assembly of traitors called Dáil Éireann. What the men of 1916 saw as the coarse grubby materialism of the British Empire is at large in our own time in the form of international liberalism which infects the whole western world.
Each nation must choose for themselves whether they will stand against the tide of national dissolution, which sweeps away peoples, homelands and traditions. Will Ireland live or die, endure or vanish? That question will be answered in this generation. As long as there is an Ireland to defend and love and unite, the fight must go on.’ Like this story?
