Speaking of broad churches July 16, 2019

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

Perhaps little surprise that the Green Party is open to coalition. But given their first and last experience of government surprising they’re quite so open to participation again.

Certainly their membership seems strongly in favour though some straws in the wind:

The debate on coalition illustrated a slight generational bias with younger members such as Saoirse McHugh and Lorna Bogue arguing trenchantly against any agreement with Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil. They also argued the party should identify itself as “explicitly anti-capitalist”. That was amended by delegates to “explicitly antineoliberalism”.

A lot riding on how many seats they actually get at the next election.
